Subject: [PATCH net-next 1/4] net: ethernet: validate pause autoneg setting

A comment in uapi/linux/ethtool.h states "Drivers should reject a
non-zero setting of @autoneg when autoneogotiation is disabled (or
not supported) for the link".

That check should be added to phy_validate_pause() to consolidate
the code where possible.

Fixes: 22b7d29926b5 ("net: ethernet: Add helper to determine if pause configuration is supported")
