Okay, so this DTS hasn't been reviewed...

This seems to correlate with the eth2 node in armada-cp11x.dtsi -
you do not need to specify the interrupts, interrupt-names, port-id
and gop-port-id unless you need to change them just because you want
to add a few properties to this node - you can just list the new or
altered properties.  To delete a property, you need to prefix the
property name with /delete-property/.

This isn't correct - you are requesting that in-band status is used
(i.o.w. the in-band control word, see commit 4cba5c210365), but your
bug report wants to enable AN bypass because there is no in-band
control word.  This seems to be rather contradictory.

May I suggest you use a fixed-link here, which will not have any
inband status, as there is no in-band control word being sent by
the switch?  That is also the conventional way of handling switch
links.

Thanks.
