NFC: nfcmrvl: use nfc-device for firmware download
Use the nfc- rather than phy-device in firmware-management code that needs a valid struct device. This specifically fixes a NULL-pointer dereference in nfcmrvl_fw_dnld_init() during registration when the underlying tty is one end of a Unix98 pty. Note that the driver still uses the phy device for any debugging, which is fine for now.
