Subject: net: phy: realtek: regression, kernel null pointer dereference

Hello,
there is a regression on linux v5.1-9573-gb970afcfcabd with a kernel null
pointer dereference.
The issue is the commit f81dadbcf7fd067baf184b63c179fc392bdb226e
  net: phy: realtek: Add rtl8211e rx/tx delays config
which uncovered a bug in phy-core when attempting to call
  phydev->drv->read_page
which can be null.
The patch to drivers/net/phy/phy-core.c below fixes the kernel null pointer
dereference. After applying the patch, there is still no network. I have
also tested the patch to drivers/net/phy/realtek.c, but no success. The
system hangs forever while initializing eth0.

Any suggestions?

Regards,
  Vicenç.
