Thanks a lot for your suggestion! I have tried it out and it appears to
work just as well as before.

Although the CONFIG pin state is still sampled at PHY reset, having it
connected to the PTP clock instead of the LED pin does not seem to
change the address we're getting.

We'll stick with that solution, since it's the least invasive one.
