I think there are known problems with 1000BASE-T on the Sabre Lite
board.  Two possible workarounds are to limit the PHY to 100BASE-TX
(should be doable with ethtool) or force it to be clock master for
1000BASE-T (requires a driver patch).  The vendor kernel apparently does
both!  Matthew Garrett has been trying to implement a workaround in a
clean way.

If the facts do not conform to your theory, they must be disposed of.
