Hi Michael,

I guess looking for a better or more ideal solution sounds good, but
sorry if this is impertinent, as it's coming from a mostly uninvolved
3rd party: This is affects a kernel that is labeled as "stable". It
seems extremely unacceptable to break ethernet support for boards like
the rockpro64, which are used largely in a headless fashion, when the
offending commit has already been identified.

I don't expect a stable kernel release to completely break my hardware
and then see people not immediately applying a workaround patch. It
seems strange. I'm not fond of having to fix things through serial
console and hunting through mailing lists to figure out what's going
on. I'd only expect this for -rc kernels.

Just my two cents.

Best regards,
