Fixes: bbc4d71d63549bcd ("net: phy: realtek: fix rtl8211e rx/tx delay config")

Then the stable people are at least aware that backporting the PHY
commit can cause issues.

So after it has hit upstream, you can send the patch to stable with the
following added:

Cc: # 5.10.x: a6f51f2efa742df0 ravb: Add
support for explicit internal clock delay configuration

I hope I got the syntax right. And there may be dependencies to backport,

As this doesn't fix an issue introduced in v5.13 or v5.14-rc1, I'll queue
this for v5.15. CIP can still take it.
