Hi Masahiko

You said that the PHY is being configured 3 times, and might be doing
auto-neg three times. Often a phy will not actually perform auto-neg,
or do it much faster, if the advertised bits do not change with each

So check how u-boot is configuring what is advertised, and look at
what Linux is configuring. In particularly, look at the pause
configuration. If pause is configured different in u-boot and Linux,
try to make it the same. Things might go faster than.
