Subject: [PATCH net 1/4] phy: fix device reference leaks

Make sure to drop the reference taken by bus_find_device_by_name()
before returning from phy_connect() and phy_attach().

Note that both function still take a reference to the phy device
through phy_attach_direct().

Fixes: e13934563db0 ("[PATCH] PHY Layer fixup")
