Subject: [PATCH net v3] net: stmmac: remove unneeded stmmac_poll_controller

Using netconsole netpoll_poll_dev could be called from interrupt
context, thus using disable_irq() would cause the following kernel
warning with CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP enabled:

  BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/irq/manage.c:137
  in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 128, non_block: 0, pid: 10, name: ksoftirqd/0

Since [0] .ndo_poll_controller is only needed if driver doesn't or
partially use NAPI. Because stmmac does so, stmmac_poll_controller
can be removed fixing the above warning.
