Hello Heiner,

sorry for the delay. I spent some time debugging the issue since your first
response and then got distracted by sickness and other responsibilities.

I can confirm that commit 0f3b1cf23f0e ("net: phy: fix reading fixed phy
status") fixes this issue for me. I tested it with next-20190222 though
as the latest linux-next breaks the networking for me again in a different
way. I have no more details yet but I will create a new thread for that
once I have something more tangible.

Thank you,
