100Mbps switch is what I have at the other side of the link. Works
perfectly with v5.2.

Bisect points at 7fb5a711545d ("net: dsa: mv88e6xxx: drop adjust_link to
enabled phylink"). Reverting this commit on top of v5.3.15 fixes the
issue (and brings the warning back). As I understand, this basically
reverts the driver migration to phylink. What might be the issue with
phylink?

Thanks,
baruch
