4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
------------------ From: Sean Wang <sean.w...@mediatek.com> [ Upstream commit 7352e252b5bf40d59342494a70354a2d436fd0cd ] The current solution would setup fixed and force link of 1Gbps to the both GMAC on the default. However, The GMAC should always be put to link down state when the GMAC is disabled on certain target boards. Otherwise, the driver possibly receives unexpected data from the floating hardware connection through the unused GMAC. Although the driver had been added certain protection in RX path to get rid of such kind of unexpected data sent to the upper stack.
