Subject: [PATCH net] of: mdio: Fix a signedness bug in
 of_phy_get_and_connect()

The "iface" variable is an enum and in this context GCC treats it as
an unsigned int so the error handling is never triggered.

Fixes: b78624125304 ("of_mdio: Abstract a general interface for phy connect")
Signed-off-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@...cle.com>
