[PATCH v3 4/5] net: ep93xx_eth: drop GFP_DMA from call to dma_alloc_coherent()

Commit a197b59ae6e8 (mm: fail GFP_DMA allocations when ZONE_DMA is not
configured) made page allocator to return NULL if GFP_DMA is set but
CONFIG_ZONE_DMA is disabled.

This causes ep93xx_eth to fail:

Since there is no restrictions for DMA on ep93xx, we can fix this by just
removing the GFP_DMA flag from the call.
