I have here two problems with Khadas VIM Pro device and Ethernet.
1) sometimes with the Kernel Linux 4.12-rc4 the Ethernet link is Up
but only 10Mbps.
Don't work (either SSH to device nor over serial console to ping out)
meson8b-dwmac c9410000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - 10Mbps/Half - flow
Works (if I do ifconfig eth0 down / up):
meson8b-dwmac c9410000.ethernet eth0: Link is Down
meson8b-dwmac c9410000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - 100Mbps/Full - flow
Whole log could be found in .
2) if downloading an amount of data while connected to device over
SSH, connection will stall and after some minutes SSH session would be
disconnected. Nothing is written in dmesg and ethtool shows me same
values before when Ethernet was working, and after when connection
stall. Whole log can be found in 
SSH to device (OK)

nothing in dmesg or in journalctl
also here is helps only to take port down and again up. restarting
networking services fails "timed out".
