Subject: [PATCH net-next 1/2] net: dsa: mv88e6xxx: fix RGMII-ID port setup

The mv88e6xxx_port_setup_mac looks if one of the {link, speed, duplex}
parameters is being changed from the current setting, and if not, does
not do anything. This test is wrong in some situations: this method also
has the mode argument, which can also be changed.

For example on Turris Omnia, the mode is PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_ID,
which has to be set byt the ->port_set_rgmii_delay method. The test does
not look if mode is being changed (in fact there is currently no method
to determine port mode as phy_interface_t type).

The simplest solution seems to be to drop this test altogether and
simply do the setup when requested.
