[PATCH v1 7/8] ARM: boards: skov-imx6: set net.ifup_force_detect if no switch is detected

In case of the no-switch board, we can only do the net boot over an USB
ethernet adapter. Since USB probing is slow, we do not probe it for
normal boot. So, set net.ifup_force_detect to probe everything possible
in case the net boot is chosen.
