ehci-platform: Change compatible string from usb-ehci to generic-ehci
The initial versions of the devicetree enablement patches for ehci-platform used "ehci-platform" as compatible string. However this was disliked by various reviewers because the platform bus is a Linux invention and devicetree is supposed to be OS agnostic. After much discussion I gave up, added a: "depends on !PPC_OF" to Kconfig to avoid a known conflict with PPC-OF platforms and went with the generic usb-ehci as requested. In retro-spect I should have chosen something different, the dts files for many existing boards already claim to be compatible with "usb-ehci", ie they have: compatible = "ti,ehci-omap", "usb-ehci"; In theory this should not be a problem since the "ti,ehci-omap" entry takes presedence, but in practice using a conflicting compatible string is an issue, because it makes which driver gets used depend on driver registration order. This patch changes the compatible string claimed by ehci-platform to "generic-ehci", avoiding the driver registration / module loading ordering problems, and removes the "depends on !PPC_OF" workaround.

USB EHCI controllers
Required properties:
- - compatible : should be "usb-ehci".
+ - compatible : should be "generic-ehci".
- reg : should contain at least address and length of the standard EHCI
register set for the device. Optional platform-dependent registers
(debug-port or other) can be also specified here, but only after
