This slipped under my radar, and I'm only just now finding it again.
Have your issues been resolved? If not, could you send a bit more of
the boot log? There should be a little more if the PHY was not
found. If you were operating with a fixed PHY setup before, then the
generic PHY driver (which will automatically bind to your PHY) should
suffice unless your MDIO bus is broken.
