Currently when interface type is MAC to Phy, netif_carrier_(on/off)
is called which is not needed as Phy lib already updates the carrier
status to net stack. This is needed only for other interface types

net-next is not open for submissions yet

Do I need to re-submit this patch when the net-next gets opened for this? This is essentially a bug fix and can be applied to current version (v4.1) as well. The reason I thought of adding this to net-next is because the DTS patch set for enabling network driver on K2 devices
is queued for v4.2. But this has no dependency on this DTS patch and
hence can be applied to v4.1 as well if you are fine with it.
