I tried, but it still fails with exactly the same error, meaning
it still crashes with the same traceback.

I am not exactly in favor of forcing GPIOLIB to be enabled for every
system with Ethernet support, just because a few of them may require
a gpio based phy reset. The same is true, really, for every other
driver using _optional gpiolib functions.

Personally, I think that the _optional functions in gpiolib _should_
return no error if gpiolib is not configured. After all, those
gpio pins _are_ supposed to be optional. gpiolib should be enabled
for affected configurations, ie on systems with gpio support which
do need the optional gpio pins. Forcing gpiolib to be enabled even
in systems with no gpio support seems to be a bit heavy-handed.
It just bloats the kernel on such systems with no added benefit.

Thanks,
Guenter
