This far it seems all right.

Open source doesn't imply active low.

We have this in stmmac_mdio_reset():

data->active_low ? 1 : 0);
if (data->delays[0])
msleep(DIV_ROUND_UP(data->delays[0], 1000));

gpio_set_value(data->reset_gpio, data->active_low ? 0 : 1);
if (data->delays[1])
msleep(DIV_ROUND_UP(data->delays[1], 1000));

gpio_set_value(data->reset_gpio, data->active_low ? 1 : 0);
if (data->delays[2])
msleep(DIV_ROUND_UP(data->delays[2], 1000));

If "snps,reset-active-low" was set it results in the sequence 1, 0, 1
if it is not set it results in the sequence 0, 1, 0.

The high (reset) is asserted by switching the pin into high-z open drain
mode, which happens by switching the line into input mode in some

I think the real reason it works now is that reset is actually active high.

It makes a lot of sense, since if it resets the device when set as input
(open drain) it holds all devices on that line in reset, which is likely
what you want as most GPIOs come up as inputs (open drain).
A pull-up resistor will ascertain that the devices are in reset.

After power on you need to actively de-assert the reset (to low) for
it to go out of reset.
