Subject[PATCH] r8169: add phy_reset parameter
When booting over the network the physical link will already be up
and configured appropriately, so there is no need to reset it and
cause auto-negotiation to occur again. Adding an option to disable
this makes it possible to avoid a 2 second delay while booting.
