I don't have that many rk3399-boards with actual ethernet and even only
the rock64 from rk3328-land, but at least my rk3399-firefly also seems
affected by this.

But so far the rk3399-puma board from Theobroma did not show that ethernet
issue for me, so I've added two Theobroma people who may or may not tell
if they've also seen that issue.
