Hi Antoine

Florian did some work for c22 PHYs so that the existing link state
could be used at boot. So for example, the bootloader configured the
PHY up and it got link, there is no need to down/up the PHY when linux
takes control. The networking comes up faster that way.

Can this work for this PHY?
