Subject: [PATCH v3 net-next] ptp: only allow phase values lower than 1 period

The way we define the phase (the difference between the time of the
signal's rising edge, and the closest integer multiple of the period),
it doesn't make sense to have a phase value equal or larger than 1
period.

So deny these settings coming from the user.

Changes in v3:
Adjust the comments to cover the equality case.

Changes in v2:
Be sure to also deny the case where the period is equal to the phase.
This represents a 360 degree offset, which is equivalent to a phase of
zero, so it should be rejected on the grounds of having a modulo
equivalent as well.
