PHYLIB: Spinlock fixes for softirqs
Use spin_lock_bh()/spin_unlock_bh() for the phydev lock throughout as it is used in phy_timer() that is called as a softirq and all the other operations may happen in the user context. There has been a change recently that did such a conversion for some of the operations on the lock, but some have been left intact. Many of them, perhaps all, may be called in the user context and I was able to trigger recursive spinlock acquisition indeed, so I think for the sake of long-term maintenance it is best to convert them all, even if unnecessarily for one or two -- better safe than sorry. Perhaps one in phy_timer() could actually be skipped as only called as a softirq -- I can send an update if that sounds like a good idea. Checked with checkpatch.pl and at the runtime.
