Subject: [RFC 2/8] net-next: phy: dont auto handle carrier state when multiple phys are attached

A network core might have more than one phy attached to its cpu port via a
switch. The current code will set the carrier state to on/off when ever a
cable is plugged into any of these ports.

The patch adds a new bool that allows the driver to tell the phy_device to not
set the carrier state. Instead the driver can manually handle the carrier
state.
