net: stmmac: Fix lack of link transition for fixed PHYs

Commit 52f95bbf ("stmmac: fix adjust link call in case of a switch
is attached") added some logic to avoid polling the fixed PHY and
therefore invoking the adjust_link callback more than once, since this
is a fixed PHY and link events won't be generated.

This works fine the first time, because we start with phydev->irq =
PHY_POLL, so we call adjust_link, then we set phydev->irq =
PHY_IGNORE_INTERRUPT and we stop polling the PHY.

Now, if we called ndo_close(), which calls both phy_stop() and does an
explicit netif_carrier_off(), we end up with a link down. Upon calling
ndo_open() again, despite starting the PHY state machine, we have
PHY_IGNORE_INTERRUPT set, and we generate no link event at all, so the
link is permanently down.

Fixes: 52f95bbf
