For the entire series:

Tested-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

tested on:

* Armada XP DB, DT-based, which uses the mvneta driver. It is affected
by the 3 first commits since Armada XP also uses the mvmdio driver.

* Kirkwood development board, non-DT, which uses the mv643xx_eth
