ukphy is the generic one that works with almost all PHYs, so you can
always fall back onto that one.

It should be pretty easy to tell which one you need by peeking at the
board, but chances are it's a NatSemi PHY (they were quite common on
21140 boards), so add the nsphy driver to your kernel as well.
