[RFC Patch] 405gp IBM EMAC Phy probe fails with no link

I have an older PPC 405GP board with a 2.6.33 kernel that fails to
install a eth0 instance because the phy probe fails when there is no
good ethernet link.
I have looked at the latest kernel code and it seems just about the same
in this area, but I have not tried it.
Does anyone else still have a 405GP board to try and see if eth0 comes
up with not enet cable?
I tried to probe the phy earlier and skip the emac_configure() call in
emac_init_phy() to avoid doing the MR0_SRST bit set.
But the phy read still times out.
I then went with this approach to re-call emac_init_phy() after the
emac_reset() finally completes when a cable is plugged in.
Does anyone else have any ideas why the phy probe fails on the first pass?
