Yes, this problem is already tracked at
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73401, where I've explained
what's going on.

Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for details from Marvell to understand
in which cases the PCS needs to be set, and in which situations it
needs to be cleared.

Since getting this information is apparently going to take much more
time that I originally hoped, I'm starting to think that the safest and
fastest course of action is indeed to revert this patch.
