SubjectRE: [Intel-wired-lan] e1000e: PHY cann't be initialized correctly on some I218 controllers

Hello Denis,
In case this reset help you fix initialization error of I218 you can use it locally on your system. How many system with I218 encountered with initialization error on your side?

Thanks,
Sasha
