I have tested this series on an imx6qp sabresd and unfortunately, it
breaks Ethernet as I can no longer get an IP address from the DHCP

Without this series, IP address can normally be retrieved.

Therefore I suggest to create a device tree property for this feature
and only enable it when such device tree property is present.
