Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: phy: improve setting advertised modes in

So far we set the advertising bitmap before setting the pause flags
in the supported bitmap. This may cause pause not being advertised.
At least r8169 driver works around this by copying supported ->
advertising on its own. The linkmode bitmaps have been introduced only
recently, therefore the patch wouldn't apply to older versions.
And behavior has been like this for years, therefore I'd consider it
an improvement.
