Good catch. The issue seems fixed by Andrew's patch :
3de97f3c6308 ("net: phy: marvell10g: use genphy_c45_an_config_aneg")

However, the fix should indeed be backported to the -stable trees, I've
been able to repdocude this on 4.20. I'll take care of sending a patch
to -net for that.

Thanks for reporting this,
