Tinywrkb confirmed to me in private communication that revert of
5502b218e001 fixes Ethernet for him on effected system.

He also referred me to an old Cubox-i spec that lists 10/100 Ethernet
only for i.MX6 Solo/DualLite variants of Cubox-i. It turns out that
there was a plan to use a different 10/100 PHY for Solo/DualLite
SOMs. This plan never materialized. All SolidRun i.MX6 SOMs use the same
AR8035 PHY that supports 1Gb.

Commit 5502b218e001 might be triggering a hardware issue on the affected
Cubox-i. I could not reproduce the issue here with Cubox-i and a Dual
SOM variant running v5.3-rc8. I have no Solo/DualLite variant handy at
the moment.
