Subject: [PATCH] ARM: dts: ls1021a-tsn: Use interrupts for the SGMII PHYs

On the LS1021A-TSN board, the 2 Atheros AR8031 PHYs for eth0 and eth1
have interrupt lines connected to the shared IRQ2_B LS1021A pin.

The interrupts are active low, but the GICv2 controller does not support
active-low and falling-edge interrupts, so the only mode it can be
configured in is rising-edge.

The interrupt number was obtained by subtracting 32 from the listed
interrupt ID from LS1021ARM.pdf Table 5-1. Interrupt assignments.

Switching to interrupts offloads the PHY library from the task of
polling the MDIO status and AN registers (1, 4, 5) every second.

Unfortunately, the BCM5464R quad PHY connected to the switch does not
appear to have an interrupt line routed to the SoC.
