Subject: [PATCH net] net: phy: guard against accessing a NULL features bitmap

Since phy driver features became a link_mode bitmap, phy drivers that
don't have a list of features configured will cause the kernel to crash
when probed.

Fixes: 719655a14971 ("net: phy: Replace phy driver features u32 with link_mode bitmap")
Reported-by: Scott Wood <oss@...error.net>
Signed-off-by: Camelia Groza <camelia.groza@....com>

I'll submit a modified version of this patch to 4.20 stable once this
one is accepted.
