v3 added the correct fixes tag, where the problem originated (initial commit
of banana pro device tree). That worked in the past until a change in
the phy device driver for realtek phy on banana pro overrode the
phyical configuration of the hardware pull-ups.

v4 added the commit which implemented that driver change (shamelessly stolen
from the commit of the fix of the identical problem on the banana pi)
