NET: Add Ethernet driver for Octeon MGMT devices.
The Octeon MGMT Ethernet ports are present in some members of the Octeon SOC family (cn52XX and cn56XX have them). The mdio bus connected to the MGMT PHYs is shared with the main octeon-ethernet driver, we force it to be loaded first by calling octeon_mdiobus_force_mod_depencency. The platform devices for the MGMT Ethernet ports are added in arch/mips/cavium-octeon/octeon-platform.c, and the register definitions for the ports live in arch/mips/include/asm/octeon/ along with their ilk. Although it currently is the only driver in drivers/net/octeon, the directory was created looking forward to the day that octeon-ethernet will move there from its current home in drivers/staging.
