Subject: [PATCH v4] lan743x: fix for potential NULL pointer dereference with bare card

This is the 4th revision of the patch fix for potential null pointer dereference
with lan743x card.

The simpliest way to reproduce: boot with bare lan743x and issue "ethtool ethN"
command where ethN is the interface with lan743x card. Example:

$ sudo ethtool eth7
dmesg:

v2:
do not return from lan743x_ethtool_set_wol if netdev->phydev == NULL, just skip
the call of phy_ethtool_set_wol() instead.
    https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/10/31/380

v3:
in function lan743x_ethtool_set_wol:
use ternary operator instead of if-else sentence (review by Markus Elfring)
return -ENETDOWN instead of -EIO (review by Andrew Lunn)

v4:
Sven Van Asbruck noticed that the patch was being applied cleanly to the 5.9
branch, so the tag “Fixes” was added as Jakub suggested.
