net: dsa: allow deferred probing
In preparation for allowing a different model to register DSA switches, update dsa_of_probe() and dsa_probe() to return -EPROBE_DEFER where appropriate. Failure to find a phandle or Device Tree property is still fatal, but looking up the internal device structure associated with a Device Tree node is something that might need to be delayed based on driver probe ordering.
