Previously, there was a known issue "On Intel® 40G Ethernet
Controller stopping the port does not really down the port link."
There were two reasons why the port is always kept up.
1. Old version Firmware would cause issue when call "Set PHY config
command" on 40G NIC.
2. Because linux kernel i40e driver didn’t call "Set PHY config
command" when ifconfig up/down, and it assumes the link always up.
While ports are forced down when DPDK quit. So if the port is switched
to controlled by kernel driver, the port will not be up through
"ifconfig <ethx> up".

This patch fixes this issue by reopening "Set PHY config command"
because:
1. New firmware issue is already fixed.
2. After DPDK quit, "ethtool -s <ethx> autoneg on" can be used to
turn on the auto negotiation, and then port can be up through
"ifconfig <ethx> up" in new version kernel i40e driver( >1.4.X ).

Fixes: 2f1e22817420 ("i40e: skip link control as firmware workaround")
Fixes: 16c979f9adf2 ("i40e: disable setting of PHY configuration")

-Stopping the port does not down the link on Intel® 40G Ethernet controller
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-**Description**:
-   On Intel® 40G Ethernet Controller stopping the port does not really down the port link.
-
-**Implication**:
-   The port link will be still up after stopping the port.
-
-**Resolution/Workaround**:
-   None
-
-**Affected Environment/Platform**:
-   All.
-
-**Driver/Module**:
-   Poll Mode Driver (PMD).
