static inline ^^^

I can do static inline only when PTP is not enabled (on else branch), thus the empty function is defined in the header file (since the init function is defined in macb_ptp and used in macb). To differentiate between macb versions, I'll add a wrapper.
Would this be ok?

You would have needed '&' and not '|' here.

Yes. Another stupid mistake... sorry. I will be more careful next time.

Also, using a flag limits the code to your platform. This works for
you, but it is short sighted. The other MACB PTP blocks have
different register layouts, and this patch does not lay the ground
work for the others.

The driver needs to be designed to support the other platforms.

It will support Xilinx.
