[PATCH v2 14/24] net: stmmac: Use optional clock request method to get stmmaceth

The "stmmaceth" clock is expected to be optional by the current driver
design, but there are several problems in the implementation. First if the
clock is specified, but failed to be requested due to an internal error or
due to not being ready yet for configuration, then the DT-probe procedure
will just proceed with further initializations. It is erroneous in both
cases. Secondly if we'd use the clock API, which expect the clock being
optional we wouldn't have needed to avoid the clock request procedure for
the "snps,dwc-qos-ethernet-4.10"-compatible devices to prevent the error
message from being printed. All of that can be fixed by using the
devm_clk_get_optional() method here provided by the common clock
