This patch adds to support the emac phy reset.

1) phy-reset-gpios:
The phy-reset-gpios is an optional property for arc emac device tree boot.
Change the binding document to match the driver code.

2) phy-reset-duration:
Different boards may require different phy reset duration. Add property
phy-reset-duration for device tree probe, so that the boards that need
a longer reset duration can specify it in their device tree.

3) phy-reset-active-high:
We need that for a custom hardware that needs the reverse reset sequence.

What concerns me the most about the existing (and suggested) PHY reset related props is that they are located in the MAC device node while not having *anything* to do with the MAC at all! These props actually belong to the PHY nodes, and I'm currently looking into how to handle them there, where they belong...

Of course, this patch will fix the issue on

In some cases, the emac couldn't work if you don't have reset the phy.
Let's add it to happy work.
