I can attach bcm54810 phy with fec, using ifconfig eth0, tx doesn't work.

Broadcom BCM54810 2188000.ethernet-1:00: attached PHY driver [Broadcom BCM54810]
(mii_bus:phy_addr=2188000.ethernet-1:00, irq=-1)
fec 2188000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - 100Mbps/Full - flow control rx/tx
IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready

Here is the output of ifconfig after trying to get ip address from dhcp server:

$ ifconfig eth0
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr EE:BD:A9:8F:9A:7E
         inet6 addr: fe80::ecbd:a9ff:fe8f:9a7e/64 Scope:Link
         RX packets:12983 errors:21 dropped:727 overruns:0 frame:21
         TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
         RX bytes:9344610 (8.9 MiB)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

Here is my Linux .dts file related contents:

       pinctrl-names = "default";
       phy-handle = <&ethphy0>;
       pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_enet>;
       phy-mode = "rgmii";
       status = "okay";

       mdio {
               #address-cells = <1>;
               #size-cells = <0>;

               ethphy0: ethernet-phy@0 {
                       reg = <0>;

Anyone have any suggestions on what might be wrong or what next to check to
get Ethernet working in Linux? Thanks.
