This patch causes a regression on r8a73a4/ape6evm and sh73a0/kzm9g.
After resume from s2ram, Ethernet no longer works:

PM: suspend exit
nfs: server aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd not responding, still trying

Reverting commit 503ba7c6961034ff ("net: phy: Avoid multiple suspends")
fixes the issue.

On both boards, an SMSC LAN9220 is connected to a power-managed local

I added some debug code to check when the clock driving the local bus
is stopped and started, but I see no difference before/after. Hence I
suspect the Ethernet chip is no longer reinitialized after resume.
