Bug Description

Impact:

Since the release of Ubuntu-raspi2_4.15.0-1022.24, the ethernet port of the RaspberryPi 3B+ has stopped to work: no phy interrupts are generated when a cable is inserted, so it's like the ethernet port is always disconnected.

The problem lies in commit 72eff2505735 ("lan78xx: Connect phy early"), that was backported into Bionic/master (and then percolated down into Bionic/raspi2):

" Commit 92571a1aae40 ("lan78xx: Connect phy early") moves the PHY
    initialisation into lan78xx_probe, but lan78xx_open subsequently calls
    lan78xx_reset. As well as forcing a second round of link negotiation,
    this reset frequently prevents the phy interrupt from being generated
    (even though the link is up), rendering the interface unusable.

    Fix this issue by removing the lan78xx_reset call from lan78xx_open.
"

Fix:

Apply the attached patch and recompile

How to test:

Boot a patched kernel and checks if the ethernet port is working

Regression potential:

None, the attached patch is a fix for the aforementioned patch, and fixes exactly this issue - it's upstream already and was backported into gregkh's stable branches 4.17+.

@Paolo, since the patch is targeted at bionic/master I added the respective task and nomination. I let you handle how you want to set status of linux-raspi2 tasks.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed-bionic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
