Subject: [PATCH v4 0/4] net/macb: merge at91_ether driver into macb driver


The rm9200 boards use the dedicated at91_ether driver instead of the
regular macb driver.

Both the macb and at91_ether drivers can be compiled as separated
Since the at91_ether driver uses code from the macb driver, at91_ether.ko
depends on macb.ko.

However the macb.ko module always fails to load on rm9200 boards: the
macb_probe() function expects a hclk clock which doesn't exist on rm9200.
Then the at91_ether.ko can't be loaded in turn due to unresolved

This series of patches fix this issue by merging at91_ether into macb.

Patch 1 is fixing a problem that might happen when enabling ARM
multi-platform suppot.

Best Regards,


Changes since v3:
- move "net: macb: remove #if defined(CONFIG_ARCH_AT91) sections" patch
  into this series to avoid dependency on other patch series.

Changes since v2:
- rebase after changed brought by commit "net: macb: remove #if
  defined(CONFIG_ARCH_AT91) sections"

Changes since v1:
- rework probe functions to share common probing logic
