In P2020RDB, VSC7385 reset is connected to GPIO. U-boot put binary
file to iCPU and make VSC7385 unmanaged.
However reset flush internal memory and iCPU stop.
In this case bootlog looks like that:

[    2.989047] vsc73xx-platform ffb00000.switch: VSC7385 (rev: 2) switch found
[    2.996192] vsc73xx-platform ffb00000.switch: iCPU enabled boots
from PI/SI, no external memory
[    3.005057] vsc73xx-platform ffb00000.switch: Chip seems to be out
of control. Assert reset and try again.
[    3.045034] vsc73xx-platform ffb00000.switch: VSC7385 (rev: 2) switch found
[    3.052171] vsc73xx-platform ffb00000.switch: iCPU disabled, no
external memory
