This patch only fixes suspend on 6ul evk in combination with
79e498a9c7da ("net: phy: micrel: Restore led_mode and clk_sel on
resume"). It is otherwise not very useful to backport just the DT patch.

That patch was earlier backported but then reverted from 4.9 because it
unexpectedly caused issues when combined with other phy patches applied
out-of-order. It seems a correct fix was eventually made (by backporting
bfe72442578b) and 79e498a9c7da could now be restored:

I'm not sure fixing nfsroot suspend/resume on dev boards meets the
criteria for linux-stable, especially since it already caused trouble
once. In general I'd class "fixing things that never worked before" as
not particularly suitable for backporting.
