Are you sure this is not because of the clock and reset?

+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+ int_mii_phy: ethernet-phy@1 {
+ compatible = "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";
+ reg = <1>;
+ clocks = <&ccu CLK_BUS_EPHY>;
+ resets = <&ccu RST_BUS_EPHY>;

The way you describe it here, the clock and reset are for the PHY. But
maybe it is actually for the bus? I can understand a bus timing out if
it has no clock, or it is held in reset. Try enabling the clock and
reset when the internal bus is selected, not when the PHY on the bus
is selected.
