this means that "something" is either set up incorrectly in the Linux
kernel or that u-boot does some magic (and the same magic is then
missing in the Linux kernel)
I'll dig out my Khadas VIM2 to test this. what should I look out for
(are there any error messages, dhcp not getting an IP address anymore,

that's interesting - I'm surprised to see this
I did a quick check and for 15 out of 18 .dts(i) files with RGMII
phy-mode we use the reset-gpios:
$ grep -R 'phy-mode = "rgmii' arch/arm64/boot/dts/amlogic/ | wc -l
$ grep -R 'ethernet-phy@0' -A10 arch/arm64/boot/dts/amlogic/ | grep
reset-gpios | wc -l

so really I would like to add the reset-gpios to the VIM3 .dtsi as
well once we figured out what's wrong on the VIM2

Best regards,
