For the public record, I've been debugging this in-part on Matteo's
board, and it looks like it's a PHY firmware issue.

Both my Macchiatobin boards use firmware (which is not even
mentioned on Marvell's extranet), whereas Matteo's board uses
It seems firmware behaves "correctly" with my patch, but does not - and neither does the latest  Both of
