You're wrong about that. I just opened up A NanoStation M5 Loco XW, and
the 8032 PHY is an external chip. The GPIO pin is external and routed to
the reset pin of that chip. That also explain why pretty much only UBNT
products are affected, and other AR934x based devices aren't.

So far I've only applied the fix to the Loco, if other devices need it,
we need to explicitly change the mach file for it. Please update to the
latest version of my staging tree and test my fix on the Loco.

Please also let me know which other devices use the 8032 PHY - you can
check that in the boot log based on the PHY ID.

There were other SoC related ethernet driver issues that affect other
devices as well. They were unrelated to the 8032 PHY.
