Currently, if runtime power management is enabled, macb driver would
go to sleep at the end of macb_probe, then the gigabit ethernet PLL
would be disabled.  During this period of time, the system would hang
up if we try to access GEMGXL control registers, it means that we
can't access GEMGXL control registers before the gigabit ethernet PLL
is resumed again. There are some cases, for example, if we execute the
'ifconfig' command, it would eventually go to the macb_get_status to
access GEMGXL control registers and cause the system to hang up. Give
more example here, if we execute 'ip link set lo up & ip addr add dev lo', it would cause the system to hang up, because
these commands would try to query the interfaces and eventually go to
macb_get_status as well. However, if we can resume the gigabit
ethernet PLL first, such as 'ip link set eth0 up' or 'udhcpc', then
everything goes well. I'm trying to figure out if there are some hooks
that we can check the PLL status in the macb driver before it actually
touches the control registers. If anyone has an idea about that,
please feel free to point it out to me, thanks.
