Can you provide a complete log? Do you use the Generic PHY driver or a
specialized one? Do you have a way to dump the registers at the time of
failure and see if BMCR.PDOWN is still set somehow?

Does the following help:

diff --git a/drivers/net/ethernet/smsc/smsc911x.c
index 49a6a9167af4..df17190c76c0 100644
--- a/drivers/net/ethernet/smsc/smsc911x.c

@@ -2618,6 +2618,7 @@ static int smsc911x_resume(struct device *dev)
if (netif_running(ndev)) {
+ phy_resume(dev->phydev);

return 0;
