Subject: [RFC PATCH net-next 2/9] net: phy: Guard against the presence of a
 netdev

A prerequisite for PHYLIB to work in the absence of a struct net_device
is to not access pointers to it.

Changes are needed in the following areas:

 - Printing: In some places netdev_err was replaced with phydev_err.

 - Incrementing reference count to the parent MDIO bus driver: If there
   is no net device, then the reference count should definitely be
   incremented since there is no chance that it was an Ethernet driver
   who registered the MDIO bus.

 - Sysfs links are not created in case there is no attached_dev.

 - No netif_carrier_off is done if there is no attached_dev.
