Tyler pointed me to this in order to get arndale networking on mainline,
but looks like this might need to be revisited for current mainline.  

I tested this and it doesn't work because as of commit 7de7c6717f2c
(ARM: multi_v7_defconfig: Enable Exynos USB PHY) the PHY that this
depends on is built as a module in multi_v7_config, so having this
driver built-in doesn't help.  Even after the PHY driver is loaded, this
driver will not detect the hardware.

So instead, I think this driver should be built as a module as well.
Testing that, I can get networking by doing loading both the phy and
this driver after boot:

 # modprobe phy-exynos-usb2
 # modprobe usb3503
