I noticed that you've dropped all PLL and gmac-config stuff. These are
board-specific properties and PLL registers should be changed
accroding to negotiated ethernet speed. By dropping them, you rely on
bootloader to configure everything corectly for you (which has been
proven unreliable for many ath79 routers) and ethernet won't work if
negotiated speed changed after u-boot's configuration.
