I am experiencing another type of crash caused by the GE0 clock (on a
IB-NAS 6210). I am compiling mv643xx_eth as a module. Thus, GE0 and GE1
get turned off first since they are unused.

When the module loads and it should enable GE0, the box hangs. I haven't
had time to find out why; my guess would be that the clock might already
be needed somewhere in mv643xx_eth_shared_probe(). The box boots again
after I add


to the code above as a quick hack.
