I don't think so.  The patch does deserve a test on the actual hardware,
and that is why I did not commit it outright.  Somebody thought that it
was important enough to loop over all PHYs and reset them that they wrote
the code.  I don't think that it matters, since mii_media_chg() will reset
or configure every PHY, but I hope that someone with the h/w will test.
