We have now received the hardware prototype and the behavior is exactly the
same: ETIMEOUT in ehci_halt(). If the last handshake() call is removed, the EHCI
host controller is correctly initialized and the device on the bus is detected
and works correctly.

I thus tend to think that this is an IP (or Bobcat) internal problem and is not
really related with the hardware nor a PHY.
