So, before this patch, my i.MX6D cuboxi platform with FEC ethernet does
not work (dhcp never gets an IP) nor does it work after this patch, and
I'm going to bisect things as it did work as of commit d8a3f5259a36
("Merge tag 'u-boot-imx-20200107' of").  As Lukasz's
concern is that this will break things like FEC ethernet, I believe what
I see is enough datapoints to say that the area in question needs more
investigation.  A follow-up patch from someone that tests multiple
platforms where we know we have seen oddities (firefly-rk3399, whatever
i.MX platform Lukasz was using, cuboxi) seems needed.  With that said:

Applied to u-boot/master now as it fixes some known issues and is
suspected but not confirmed to not break what b7adcdd073c0 was
