indeed, since we are also a clock provider we have to depend on

That brings up a question though:
so far the new driver uses the same Kconfig symbol as the "old" driver
The "old" driver does not need CONFIG_COMMON_CLK while the new one does.
I see a few options here:
1. simply adding the dependency (as most configurations will have
CONFIG_COMMON_CLK enabled anyways)
2. add some depends on COMMON_CLK || MACH_MESON6 || MACH_MESON8 foo
3. use a new Kconfig symbol for new new driver (CONFIG_DWMAC_MESON8B?)

And finally regarding your other mail: I have already changed
WARN_ON(PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO(...)) to WARN_ON(IS_ERR(...)) in v4
