   We have one more issue with the current driver: bit 2 of priv->tstamp_rx_ctrl
can only be set as a part of the ALL mask, not individually. I'm now thinking we
should set RAVB_RXTSTAMP_TYPE[_ALL] to 2 (and probably just drop the ALL mask)...

   Yeah, that's better. But do we really need am anonymous bit 2 that can't be
toggled other than via passing the ALL mask?
