Support for Ethernet on GPIO Module

Has anyone tried connecting an Ethernet to GPIO module, like the W5500, LAN8720 or the ENC28J60 to a Balena-based Raspberry Pi? More specifically a Raspberry Pi Zero.

Is any change required on the Balena configuration, or does it work out of the box?

Using a W5500 Lite module (WIZ850io) I was able to connect the Pi to the ethernet using the following device configuration:

BALENA_HOST_CONFIG_dtoverlay: "anyspi,spi0-0,dev='w5500',speed=30000000","w5500"
