Great to hear! Tim, can you test this patch out too?

I would send a note to LKML asking why this hasn't been included in
mainline, and Cc the following:

Frank Li <Frank.Li@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Zeng Zhaoming <b32542@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
David S. Miller <davem@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

And perhaps:

Shawn Guo <shawn.guo@xxxxxxxxxx>
Xiao Jiang <jgq516@xxxxxxxxx>

As they have done some work on the fec driver recently.

You can also Cc myself, Thomas, Tim and Uwe.

Note that you see that this causes a hang in the system if ksoftirqd is
a real time task. Not to mention, that ksoftirqd spins in an infinite
loop if the cable isn't connected (regardless of ksoftirqd's priority).
