This PHY will work fine, as the built-in RealTek PHY doesn't provide
any PHY-specific registers, just generic ones.

`rtpphy' was a PHY attachment I wrote for the RealTek 8139 driver I wrote
independent of the one we have now (which is a hacked version of the FreeBSD
`rl' driver). I had some obscrure problem with mine that I wasn't ever able
to find, so it was never committed.
All references to `rtpphy' should probably just be deleted.
