Hi Samu

Please could you try this patch. I've not had chance to properly test
it, and i'm about to go away for a long weekend.

Thanks
	Andrew

Subject: [PATCH] net: phy: phylink: Only change mac when fixed link changes
 state

phylink polls the fixed-link once per second to see if the GPIO has
changed state, or if the callback indicates if there has been a change
in state. It then calls the MAC to reconfigure itself to the current
state.

For some MACs, reconfiguration can result in packets being dropped.
Hence keep track of the link state between polls and only reconfigure
the MAC if there has been a change of state.
