I think this definitely needs to become a library - I've just been
looking at mvneta in Armada 388.  One of the three interfaces has
PTP support, and it looks like the register set is again very
similar to the 88E151x and 88E6xxx PTP/TAI register layouts, but
has yet another different access method.

We certainly don't want three copies of almost identical code...

FTTP is here! 40Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
