So there has been this cpsw driver since v3.4-rc1~177^2~5

   df82859 netdev: driver: ethernet: Add TI CPSW driver

and four people signed off on it, so it must have been working at one
point. Since the device tree make-over, the driver is a derelict, and
thus the present patch is fixing a regression.

I just want the already merged driver to work with the vanilla
kernel. Is that too much to ask?
