Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] net: phy: Don't miss phy_suspend() on PHY_HALTED for PHYs with interrupts

phy_suspend() doesn't get called as part of phy_stop() for PHYs
using interrupts because the phy state machine is never triggered
after a phy_stop().

Explicitly trigger the PHY state machine in phy_stop() so that it can
see the new PHY state (HALTED) and suspend the PHY.

As most PHYLIB consumers will call phy_stop() with rtnl_lock() held
from ndo_close() so we use don't wait for workqueue cancellation in
phy_trigger_machine() by passing false for the 'sync' argument.

Fixes: 3c293f4e08b5 ("net: phy: Trigger state machine on state change and not polling.")
