Subject: [PATCH v1 2/6] net/macb: check if macb_config present

The commit 98b5a0f4a228 introduces jumbo frame support, but also it assumes
that macb_config present which is not always true.

The configuration without macb_config fails to boot.

 Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000010
 ptbr = 90350000 pgd = 00000000
 Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
