[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 306/371] net: stmmac: dwmac-meson8b: Fix signedness bug in probe

[ Upstream commit f10210517a2f37feea2edf85eb34c98977265c16 ]

The "dwmac->phy_mode" is an enum and in this context GCC treats it as
an unsigned int so the error handling is never triggered.

Fixes: 566e82516253 ("net: stmmac: add a glue driver for the Amlogic Meson 8b / GXBB DWMAC")
