I am using polling

Ok, I use the following code to print out phy register. Note I print out 32bit,
bit 31 = 1 means error


Test 1: boot up with cable plugged in eth0

Hmm, I remove my debug code from m88e1111_config_init(), do you need this?

I have an idea that if the phy is in sleep mode, flip flop energy detect mode to
leave sleep mode. This is done every 6 seconds, not so intrusive. I will try it
later.

No success so far.

MII_PDOWN then MII_RESET no success either.
