1) Take the SerDes power down out of the suspend code for the at803x.
2) Assume MII_PHYID1/2 registers are not guaranteed to be available
when the PHY is powered down. So get_phy_id should first read
MII_BMCR. If it gets 0xffff, assume there is no PHY there. If the
PDOWN bit is set, power up the PHY. Then reading the ID registers.
Before we take approach #1, I'd like to hear from the developer of that
patch, Zefir. According to him, that patch is necessary to fix a bug.
I don't know if that bug exists only on his system, though.
