The LAN8814 has a coma mode pin which puts the PHY into isolate and
power-dowm mode. Unfortunately, the mode cannot be disabled by a

register. Usually, the input pin has a pull-up and connected to a GPIO
which can then be used to disable the mode. Try to get the GPIO and
deassert it.

Poor choice of word, how about deep sleep, dormant, super isolate?

Which one do you mean? Super isolate sounded like broadcom wording ;)

Coma is not a great term to use IMHO. Yes Super isolate (tm) is a Broadcom thing, and you can come out of super isolate mode with register writes, so maybe not the best suggestion.
