We have a board using a 8641d and Marvel 88E1111 PHY. I had problems getting the PHY to work correctly when using the Marvell PHY driver, however we were using the PHY as a standard PHY and found that the generic PHY driver worked just fine. Have you tried it without enabling the Marvell PHY driver so it uses the generic one?
