Does not help. What does seem to help is inserting prints after the 
FEC_ENET_MII check but that's probably because it inject a long delay 
equivalent to the long udelay Andy has mentioned.

I found that in my case FEC_ENET_MII is already set on entry to 
fec_enet_mdio_read, doesn't this make fec_enet_mdio_wait pointless?

Perhaps the problem is that the MII Interrupt pending bit is not 
cleared. I can fix the problem like this:
