I'm trying to implement this feature on our boards, which don't use
GPIOs but rather a memory-mapped FPGA.  I control the mux by setting
some bits in one of the FPGA registers.

Do you have a real device tree I can use as an example?

I'm not sure what the "parent" MDIO bus node is supposed to represent.
 Is that that device that actually controls the muxing hardware, which
in our case would be the FPGA?
