I'll look into getting ipconfig to detect link up notifications so its
sleep()s can then just be removed...

What about detecting link up before calling rtl8169_phy_reset instead?

I've tried not resetting the PHY but still setting the speed to auto
1000-FD, however this still resets the link.

The downside is that the speed won't be reset if the link is up while
booting. This may actually be desirable but it's not the current
behaviour. It could be possible to check if the speed is already set
to auto 1000-FD, although as the comment setting it indicates, the
8101 is a special case.

On my system the PHY/link speed is also getting reset by the boot ROM,
so I can't check that any change would be persisted.

This works ok for me:
