net: phy: realtek: Only force master mode on rtl8211b/c

Commit 525d187a

 ("net: phy: Optionally force master mode for RTL PHY")
added the define to force the PHY into master mode. Unfortunatly this is
an all or nothing switch. So it applies to either all PHY's or no PHY's.

The bug that define tried to solve was a buggy PLL in the RTL8211C only.

The Olimex OLinuXino Lime2 has gotten an upgrade where the PHY was
replaced with an RTL8211E. With this define however, both lime2 boards
are either forced to master mode or not. We could of course have a
binary for each board, but the following patch fixes this by adding a
'quirk' to the flags to the rtl8211b and rtl8211c only. It is now
possible to force master mode, but only have it apply to the rtl8211b
and rtl8211c.
