This commit is taken from Variscite linux kernel public git repository.
Original patch author: Nate Drude <nate.d@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
See: https://github.com/varigit/linux-imx/blob/5.15-2.0.x-imx_var01/drivers/net/ethernet/freescale/fec_main.c#L3993-L4050

The ethernet phy reset was moved from the fec controller to the
mdio bus, see for example: 0e825b32c033e1998d0ebaf247f5dab3c340e3bf

When the fec driver managed the reset, the regulator had time to
settle during the fec phy reset before calling of_mdiobus_register,
which probes the mii bus for the phy id to match the correct driver.

Now that the mdio bus controls the reset, the fec driver no longer has
any delay between enabling the regulator and calling of_mdiobus_register.
If the regulator voltage has not settled, the phy id will not be read
correctly and the generic phy driver will be used.

The following call tree explains in more detail:

fec_reset_phy <- no longer introduces delay after migration to mdio reset
get_phy_device <- mii probe for phy id to match driver happens here
mdio_device_reset <- mdio reset assert / deassert delay happens here

Add a 20ms enable delay to the regulator to fix the issue.
