O.K, i don't think that is correct. EEE should only be enabled if both
the MAC and the PHY supports it. We need some way for the MAC to
indicate it does not support EEE.

If set_eee is optional the meaning of a NULL pointer is that the MAC
does support EEE. So for mv88e6060, lan9303, microchip and mt7530
which currently don't support EEE, you need to add a set_eee which
returns -ENODEV.

Having to implement the op to say you don't implement the feature just
seems wrong.
