Subject: [PATCH] net: phy: Fix c45 no phy detected logic

The commit "disregard Clause 22 registers present bit..." clears
the low bit of the devices_in_package data which is being used
in get_phy_c45_ids() to determine if a phy/register is responding
correctly. That check is against 0x1FFFFFFF, but since the low
bit is always cleared, the check can never be true. This leads to
detecting c45 phy devices where none exist.

Lets fix this by also clearing the low bit in the mask to 0x1FFFFFFE.
This allows us to continue to autoprobe standards compliant devices
without also gaining a large number of bogus ones.

Fixes: 3b5e74e0afe3 ("net: phy: disregard "Clause 22 registers present" bit in get_phy_c45_devs_in_pkg")
