I think it would be better to send these to 5.0 to avoid the regression
siting in linux-next.

The patches are actually doing to the correct thing (we need rgmii-id,
not rmgii-txid for these boards).
It was just a matter of luck that it worked with rgmii-txid as the
driver was broken and did not disabled the rxid when it should have.

Tested the patch on top of mainline
(b5372fe5dc84235dbe04998efdede3c4daa866a9) was the topmost commit after
the rc7 tag.
