Note that FEC calls phylink_stop() in fec_suspend() if the net device
was up. So that kind of rules out phylink and phylib too... and
points towards stmmac doing something it shouldn't.

... because phylink_mac_change() is not supposed to be used to force
the link down. I can't say this loudly enough: Read the documentation.
I don't write it just for my pleasure, it's there to help others get
stuff correct. If people aren't going to read it, I might as well not
waste the time writing it.

 * phylink_mac_change() - notify phylink of a change in MAC state
 * @pl: a pointer to a &struct phylink returned from phylink_create()
 * @up: indicates whether the link is currently up.
 *
 * The MAC driver should call this driver when the state of its link
 * changes (eg, link failure, new negotiation results, etc.)

Realise that "up" is there merely to capture that the link has gone
down - but by the time phylink reacts to that (which may be some time
*after* this call has been made - it is *not* synchronous since it's
meant to be called from an *interrupt*) the link state may well have
changed again. So, phylink will always recheck the link state with
up = false, so you _will_ get the link going down and then up.

In any case "change in MAC state" is only applicable when in in-band
mode, not in PHY mode, so you should not be calling this if you have
a PHY attached which isn't in in-band mode.

So you've asked it to wake on MagicPacket, which is WAKE_MAGIC. As
you got the message "wakeup enable" which is emitted by
stmmac_set_wol(), this will only be emitted if priv->plat->pmt() is
set. It will _not_ call phylink_ethtool_set_wol().

So, you are not using the PHY-based wake-on-lan, but the MAC based
wake-on-lan. This means you need to have the phy <-> mac link up
during suspend, and in that case, yes, you do not want to call
phylink_stop() or phylink_start().

I'm not sure what stmmac_pmt() does - thanks to the macro stuff, I'd
need to trace it through the driver and find out where that goes,
and also which variant of stmmac you're using... so without more
information I can't follow what the driver is doing.
