Subject: [PATCH net] net: stmmac: Fix a race in EEE enable callback

We are saving the status of EEE even before we try to enable it. This
leads to a race with XMIT function that tries to arm EEE timer before we
set it up.

Fix this by only saving the EEE parameters after all operations are
performed with success.
