Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 260/671] net: phy: don't clear BMCR in genphy_soft_reset

From: Heiner Kallweit <hkallweit1@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit d29f5aa0bc0c321e1b9e4658a2a7e08e885da52a ]

So far we effectively clear the BMCR register. Some PHY's can deal
with this (e.g. because they reset BMCR to a default as part of a
soft-reset) whilst on others this causes issues because e.g. the
autoneg bit is cleared. Marvell is an example, see also thread [0].
So let's be a little bit more gentle and leave all bits we're not
interested in as-is. This change is needed for PHY drivers to
properly deal with the original patch.
