igb: reset the PHY before reading the PHY ID
Several people have reported firmware leaving the I210/I211 PHY's page select register set to something other than the default of zero. This causes the first accesses, PHY_IDx register reads, to access something else, resulting in device probe failure: igb: Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Network Driver - version 5.4.0-k igb: Copyright (c) 2007-2014 Intel Corporation. igb: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -2 This problem began for them after a previous patch I submitted was applied: commit 2a3cdead8b408351fa1e3079b220fa331480ffbc Author: Aaron Sierra <asierra@xes-inc.com> Date: Tue Nov 3 12:37:09 2015 -0600 igb: Remove GS40G specific defines/functions I personally experienced this problem after attempting to PXE boot from I210 devices using this firmware: Intel(R) Boot Agent GE v1.5.78 Copyright (C) 1997-2014, Intel Corporation Resetting the PHY before reading from it, ensures the page select register is in its default state and doesn't make assumptions about the PHY's register set before the PHY has been probed.
