Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 2/4] net: phy: warn if phy_start is called from
 invalid state

phy_start() should be called from states PHY_READY or PHY_HALTED only.
Check for this to detect misbehaving drivers. Also the state machine
should be started only when being called from one of the valid states.
