Shouldn't there be a more specific compatible string here, as well as the
particular version of the dwmac you use?

In the binding example, you list the device as "dma-coherent",
but in this instance, it is not marked that way. Can you find out
whether the device is in fact connected properly to a cache-coherent

Note that failing to mark it as cache-coherent will make the device
rather slow and possibly not work correctly if it is in fact coherent,
but the default is non-coherent since a lot of SoCs are lacking
that hardware support.
