This series makes the at91_ether and macb driver build-able on any architecture.

Patch 1 fixes a integer truncated warning in macb, which will show up when compiling for 64-bit, before enabling macb driver for other architectures.

Patch 2 removes the HAVE_NET_MACB from the cadence Kconfig and this allow macb to be built on any architecture. The macb driver requires no other modifications.

Patch 4 moves a bootloader quirk for CSB337 from at91_ether into platform data as a flag. This allow us to remove the last mach include and build this driver on any architecture. It also make it easier to share the address setup between at91_ether and macb.

The next series will make the at91_ether driver use address setting and statistics from macb. There is also a clean up of print outs plus some comment/style fixes.

Patch log:
v3 - Include integer truncated warning fix for macb
v2 - Use macb platform data to support reversed ethernet address and squash HAVE_NET_MACB removal patches.

Joachim Eastwood (4):
  net/macb: fix truncate warnings
  net/cadence: get rid of HAVE_NET_MACB
  net/at91_ether: select MACB in Kconfig
  net/at91_ether: add pdata flag for reverse Eth addr
