On resume the PHY should be reset and the link renegotiated (or set to
a fixed speed/duplex if set by the user via ethtool) just like as
happens on ->open().

You seem to be avoiding that here.

If the PHY is not functioning properly after the ->resume() triggered
reset, fix that instead.

I'm not applying this patch, it doesn't look the right thing to do at
