This ifdef desert in the fec driver currently breaks all SoCs except
i.MX6 in the imx_v6_v7_defconfig.

Most of these could be fixed with something like if (fec_use_ptp(fep)),

This one changes the layout of the hardware buffer description which is
not so easy to fix.

I don't know how to continue from here. Since the whole patch doesn't
seem to reviewed very much I tend to say we should revert it for now and
let Frank redo it for the next merge window.

Other opinions?
