I had this issue aswell on the babbage board. It turned out that this
was really an issue in the initialization order. On the babbage the fec
was registered before power was applied to the phy. Looking at the
eukrea mx51 code it seems that you reset the phy after you have
registered the fec. I suggest that you change the order instead of
applying this patch.
