Subject: [PATCH] phy/marvell: prevent unneeded page switching

marvell_read_status() no longer first switches to the fiber page, instead
looks at the already active register page first. In case the link is down,
switches to the other (fiber/copper) register page.

Unneeded register page switching of the Marvell 88E1510 PHY can cause
the ethernet driver to register a link down & up event.
