First of all, this should be posted on the u-boot mailing list, not here.

If you take a look at some other 8260 derivative boards, it's kinda
obvious how it is done.  First CONFIG_MII, CONFIG_BITBANGMII.  Define
the macros for MDIO, MDC, and MIIDELAY specific to your implementation.
Due to the wide variation of implementation, the PHY management is done
from the board specific files, not in the generic FCC driver.  Take a
look at board/mpc8260ads/mpc8260ads.c.

Yes, in many different variations that you can model to suit your needs.
