Some drivers _have to_ reset the PHY on an MTU change.  Admittedly,
a lot less than used to be the case, but on some hardware, it is still

If the MTU is being "changed" to the default, can't dhcpcd leave it
alone?  Or is that already the case, and on this network, can we thus
assume the MTU is not 1500?
