It seems we have multiple SoCs for DGS-1210:

1) RTL8380 for -10
2) RTL8382 for -28
3) RTL8393 for -52

It is not the best approach to include a shared config and redefine a
property. The dgs-1210 definition should go in Makefile (we also have
an rtl8393) with only common properties and SoC should be defined by
each device. I was preparing something like that for -52 here:

I believe the same setup might work for any dgs-1210 F series. It
makes sense as d-link uses a common firmware for Fx-Series. However, I
didn't test SFP patches in my -28 because I lost all my 1g modules a
couple years ago and 10g modules don't work. Anyway, the -52 variant
does seem to share the same GPIOs, even using a different SoC. Besides
reboot, reset button and led, I could only test the pin that detects
the module presence. All of them match those same pins used by other
variantes. I would expect that the remaining SFP pins are also at the
same positions. I only tried SFP patches to fix (it didn't) the combo
ports initialization in the -52 model, although they might touch
another part of the driver not used by that device (as it uses
different SoC).
