Subject: [PATCH v1 03/25] net: phy: fixed_phy: Remove unused seqcount

Commit bf7afb29d545 ("phy: improve safety of fixed-phy MII register
reading") protected the fixed PHY status with a sequence counter.

Two years later, commit d2b977939b18 ("net: phy: fixed-phy: remove
fixed_phy_update_state()") removed the sequence counter's write side
critical section -- neutralizing its read side retry loop.

Remove the unused seqcount.
