It's currently integrated as one device. If you instatined two blocks,
you would end up with two mdio controllers, each inside those two
liteeth blocks.

Obviously being software someone could change that. We've had a few
discussions about the infinite possibilities of a soft SoC and what
that means for adding driver support to mainline. I think having some
basic driver support is useful, particularly as we then get close
review as Jakub provided.

The liteeth block has seen a lot of use under Linux by risc-v
(vexriscv), powerpc (microwatt), and openrisc (mor1k) designs. The
microwatt and or1k designs have mainline support, making them easy to
test. This driver will support the normal configurations of those
platforms.

As the soft core project evolves, we can revisit what goes in
mainline, how flexible that driver support needs to be, and how best
to manage that.

Do you have a favourite example that I could follow?
