Please take a look at Documentation/networking/phy.txt and
Fixes: 529ed1275263 ("net: phy: phy drivers should not set SUPPORTED_[Asym_]Pause")

Pause frames / flow control

The PHY does not participate directly in flow control/pause frames except by
making sure that the SUPPORTED_Pause and SUPPORTED_AsymPause bits are set in
MII_ADVERTISE to indicate towards the link partner that the Ethernet MAC
controller supports such a thing. Since flow control/pause frames generation
involves the Ethernet MAC driver, it is recommended that this driver takes care
of properly indicating advertisement and support for such features by setting
the SUPPORTED_Pause and SUPPORTED_AsymPause bits accordingly. This can be done
either before or after phy_connect() and/or as a result of implementing the
ethtool::set_pauseparam feature.
