Document Table of Contents Channel Level Reset Scheme

The following diagram shows the reset scheme per channel. mm_reset is used to reset the registers in MAC, PHY, MDIO and address_decoder block while datapath_reset is used to reset all digital blocks including PHY reset controller. However, mm_reset and datapath_reset are tied together at multi channel level in the design example, therefore they can't be triggered separately.
