Subject: [PATCH v1] ARM i.MX6q: make sure PHY fixup for KSZ9031 is applied only on one board

Currently all board specific fixups defined in mach-imx*.c are not
working properly. They are applied on all boards with the same iMX SoC
variant and even if:
- PHY needs different settings because of different board design
- PHY needs different settings if it is not connected directly to the SoC.
  For example, the PHY is connected to a switch and the switch is connected
  to the SoC.

Since most PHY drivers don't know about changed default settings, these
settings will not be restored by the PHY driver after reset or
suspend/resume cycle.

This patch changes the MICREL KSZ9031 fixup, which was introduced for
the "Data Modul eDM-QMX6" board in following patch, to be only activated
for this specific board.

| ARM: i.MX6: add ethernet phy fixup for KSZ9031
| The KSZ9031 is used on the i.MX6 based Data Modul eDM-QMX6
| board. It needs the same fixup to the rx/tx delays as other
| i.MX6 boards.

If some board was working by accident with this fixup, it will probably
break and should be fixed properly by setting related device tree

To fix this properly the "eDM-QMX6" devicetree:


should have board specific *-skew-ps properties. See:
