For the Bionic point of view, it comes from Cosmic/raspi2 (since
that's where i'm cherry-picking), but originally it came from
Raspberry Pi's github tree / rpi-4.18.y branch

They keep rebasing so that sha1 is no more, but here it is:

    lan78xx: Move enabling of EEE into PHY init code

    Enable EEE mode as soon as possible after connecting to the PHY, and
    before phy_start. This avoids a second link negotiation, which speeds
    up booting and stops the interface failing to become ready.
