Freescale faster ethernet controller driver fec.c does not support phylib, so
it is not easy for people change different phy devices in their hardware

In the patchset, removed old phy supporting code in this driver and enable
generic phylib and ethtool based carrier detection.

Two config options need to be changed to make the phylib works.

Please consider apply this patchset into Lucid, and it will be submitted to
upstream shortly. Or just git pull from here:
	git://kernel.ubuntu.com/roc/ubuntu-lucid fec

For building, need to bump API and update the modules list.
