BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1934923

SRU Justification:


The mlxbf-gige driver has just been upstreamed so linux-bluefield needs to be synced up with what we have upstreamed.


* Cleaned up the gige driver as instructed by maintainers
* removed dependency between the mlxbf-gige driver and gpio-mlxbf2 driver
* updated the UEFI ACPI table to reflect the above changes

[Test Case]

* oob_net0 coming up after several SW_RESET or reboot
* oob_net0 coming up after several powercycles
* oob_net0 coming up after pushing a new Ubuntu/CentOS/Yocto
* rmmod/modprove mlxbf_gige several times
* OOB PXE boot multiple times from UEFI menu
* automate OOB PXE boot and do reboot
* automate OOB PXE boot and do powercycle
* Test that GPIO7 reset still works on BlueSphere like boards

[Regression Potential]

Any of the test cases above could be impacted due to these new changes.
