It was before a33e6112d9b0 ("phy: Elimination the forced speed
reduction algorithm") because the PHY having PHY_HAS_MAGICANEG set
would not go through the PHY speed reduction algorithm. Now, this is
useless as there is a subsequent break and no conditional code based
on PHY_HAS_MAGICANEG (which means that we should also kill its usage
at some point).

Feel free to add my reviewed-by tag after fixing the mangling David spotted.
