Subject: [PATCH net] mvpp2: enable rxhash only on the first port

Currently rxhash only works on the first port of the CP (Communication
Processor). Enabling it on other ports completely blocks packet reception.
This patch only adds rxhash as supported feature to the first port,
so rxhash can't be enabled on other ports:

	# ethtool -K eth0 rxhash on
	# ethtool -K eth1 rxhash on
	# ethtool -K eth2 rxhash on
	Cannot change receive-hashing
	Could not change any device features
	# ethtool -K eth3 rxhash on
	Cannot change receive-hashing
	Could not change any device features
