Indeed. I didn't consider the case that the PHY was started but a cable was
unplugged before hibernation.

I agree, too.
I'll try this in v2 patch that changes the PHY state to PHY_UP and calls
phy_start_machine(), only when the PHY was started before hibernation.
If I understand correctly, it will be like that:

phydev->link = 0;
if (phy_is_started(phydev)) {
phydev->state = PHY_UP;
phy_start_machine(phydev);
}

Thank you,
