v2: please ignore the v1 patchset, since testers found v1 patches failed to
    pass their validation
  - rework on the second patch to fix performance regression

The first patch is fixing a bug found by upstream review.

The 2nd one is a new fixing to the performance impact after introducing phylib
to fec.c driver. The busy wait in mdio poll opertaion will drop transfer speed.

These 2 patches can be cleanly applied to both Karmic and Lucid fsl-imx51 branch.
And Both of them were tested and passed the validation. Please find the testing
report here:

Please consider pull it from:
