Subject: [PATCH RESEND net] net: phy: xgmiitorgmii: Support generic PHY status read

Some PHY drivers like the generic one do not provide a read_status
callback on their own but rely on genphy_read_status being called

With the current code, this results in a NULL function pointer call.
Call genphy_read_status instead when there is no specific callback.

Fixes: f411a6160bd4 ("net: phy: Add gmiitorgmii converter support")
Signed-off-by: Paul Kocialkowski <>
Added Fixes tag and net label for resend.
