Subject: [RESEND PATCH -net] cpsw/netcp: cpts depends on posix_timers

With posix timers having become optional, we get a build error with
the cpts time sync option of the CPSW driver:

drivers/net/ethernet/ti/cpts.c: In function 'cpts_find_ts':
drivers/net/ethernet/ti/cpts.c:291:23: error: implicit declaration of function 'ptp_classify_raw';did you mean 'ptp_classifier_init'? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

It really makes no sense to build this driver if we can't use PTP,
so it's better to go back to 'select PTP_1588_CLOCK' but instead
add a dependency on POSIX_TIMERS. Adding 'depends on PTP_1588_CLOCK'
might also work, but has the risk of circular dependencies when
mixed with other drivers using 'imply'.

Fixes: baa73d9e478f ("posix-timers: Make them configurable")

Originally submitted on Dec 16, but not applied after I missed a
reply from Nico. I confirmed that this is still needed for v4.10
and v4.11-rc2 and am resending it without changes.
