ucc_geth: Fix netdev watchdog triggering on link changes

Since commit 864fdf884e82bacbe8ca5e93bd43393a61d2e2b4 ("ucc_geth:
Fix hangs after switching from full to half duplex") ucc_geth driver
disables the controller during MAC configuration changes. Though,
disabling the controller might take quite awhile, and so the netdev
watchdog might get upset:

 NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth2 (ucc_geth): transmit queue 0 timed out

This patch fixes the issue by detaching the netdev during the
time we change the configuration.
