Yes, I guess it's the new "disable by default" behaviour that breaks it.

The OCTEON HW code knows only about RGMII. And looking at
octeon ethernet staging driver it does phy connect always with
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_GMII. I did some experimentation, and it seems that
with PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_RXID it starts to work.. In the DT we have
for ethernet for this board:

	rx-delay = <0>;
	tx-delay = <0x10>;

which I guess matches, or does this make any sense?
