Subject: [PATCH] net: mvneta: only do WoL speed down if the PHY is valid

Previous patch:
 "net: mvneta: speed down the PHY, if WoL used, to save energy"

was causing a NULL pointer dereference when ethernet switches are
connected to mvneta, because they aren't handled directly as PHYs.

Fix it by restricting the mentioned patch for the PHY detected cases.
