net: phylink: avoid oops during initialisationnet-merged
If we intend to use PCS operations, mac_pcs_get_state() will not be implemented, so will be NULL. If we also intend to register the PCS operations in mac_prepare() or mac_config(), then this leads to an attempt to call NULL function pointer during phylink_start(). Avoid this.
