Fixes: 8dcf2ad39fdb2 ("net: atlantic: add hwmon getter for MAC temperature")
Acked-by: Guenter Roeck <linux@...ck-us.net>

As in: This patch does not cause any additional trouble and will fix the
observed compile failure. However, the submitter of 8dcf2ad39fdb2 might
consider adding a mutex either into hw_atl_b0_get_mac_temp() or into
the calling code.

Thanks,
Guenter
