Hm.. does ifconfig say that the interface is up?

The problem may be that the phy needs some special handling, but apparently
there's no match for this phy. The OUI seems to be equal to the Matsushita
Electronics OUI, but I can't find anything on them manufacturing phys.

You could experiment and replace MII_OUI_CICADA with 0x00c08f in
dev/mii/ciphy.c, so that it matches, and see if that works. It's
a long shot, but you never know until you try I guess.
