Subject: Micrel KSZ8031 - phy link missing


i am trying to figure out why, moving to kernel 3.16.2, i have phy-link 

I have an arm-corex AM1808 (TI OMAPL-138/DAVINCI) cpu based board, using 
Micrel KSZ8031.

No lease, failing
Adjusting output audio levels

It says no lease. But i verified that even setting a fixed ip, board is 
not reachable.
Tracing inside phy.c i don't see the link to come up. Nothing seen on WS.

As far as you know, there can be some bug open for davinci-emac and micrel ?

Many thanks
