Subject: [PATCH] phy dp83867: depend on CONFIG_OF_MDIO

The DP83867 phy driver doesn't actually work when CONFIG_OF_MDIO isn't enabled.
It simply passes the device tree test, but leaves all internal configuration
initialized at 0. Then it configures the phy with those values and renders a
previously working configuration useless.

This patch makes sure that we only build the DP83867 phy code when
CONFIG_OF_MDIO is set, to not run into that problem.
