what is the problem that you observe here?
did you investigate further why resetting the PHY changes this?

the problem I see with removing the reset-gpios is that we cannot
fully reset the PHY into a defined state
some of the registers are kept with a soft-reset

my understanding is that max-speed is needed when (in this case) the
PHY advertises a higher speed than the hardware is actually capable of
(for whatever reason)
what is the problem that you have seen when max-speed was not set?
