Subject: [PATCH] e1000e: Power cycle phy on PM resume

We are seeing the following error after S3 resume:
[  704.746874] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: Setting page 0x6020
[  704.844232] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: MDI Write did not complete
[  704.902817] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: Setting page 0x6020
[  704.903075] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: reading PHY page 769 (or 0x6020 shifted) reg 0x17
[  704.903281] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: Setting page 0x6020
[  704.903486] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: writing PHY page 769 (or 0x6020 shifted) reg 0x17
[  704.943155] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: MDI Error
[  705.108161] e1000e 0000:00:1f.6 eno1: Hardware Error

Since we don't know what platform firmware may do to the phy, so let's
power cycle the phy upon system resume to resolve the issue.
