Subject[PATCH] net: eth: xgene: fix booting with devicetree
Commit de7b5b3d790a ("net: eth: xgene: change APM X-Gene SoC platform
ethernet to support ACPI") breaks booting with devicetree with UEFI
firmware. In that case, I get:

The problem here is that the enet hw clocks are not getting
initialized because of a test to avoid the initialization if
UEFI is used to boot. This is an incorrect test. When booting
with UEFI and devicetree, the kernel must still initialize
the enet hw clocks. If booting with ACPI, the clock hw is
not exposed to the kernel and it is that case where we want
to avoid initializing clocks.
