From Marvell's brief description http://www.marvell.com/transceivers/alaska-gbe/,
it seems that 88E1510/1518 don't support fiber. Only 88E1512 does. In
that case, the fiber support patch is not applicable to 88E1510/1518.

I investigate a little more of the u-boot auto-nego time out
problem after reboot and found that the problem is caused by
marvell_read_status() which leaves the fiber page out because the
phydev->link is TRUE. But if fiber is not applicable to 88E1510/1518,
this is an invalid check.

Any suggestion?
