Freescale fec.c driver breakage

Hi Sascha,

Commit f4d40de39a23f0c39cca55ac63e1175c69c3d2f7 ("net fec: do not
depend on grouped clocks") breaks compilation of the FEC driver for
non iMX platforms in linux-3.5-rc1. For example when compiling for
ColdFire I get:

	  LD      vmlinux
     drivers/built-in.o: In function `fec_probe':
     fec.c:(.devinit.text+0x1e0): undefined reference to `devm_clk_get'

Trivially we could conditionalize the code block that calls
devm_clk_get() in the probe routine, but that is kind of ugly.

Can you come up with a better fix?
