[Y.b. Lu] Thanks. Let me use DPAA2_PTP_CLK_PERIOD_NS in next version.

[Y.b. Lu] I will add patch for ethtool_get_ts_info in next version. Thanks!
But I'm not sure whether ethtool should show hw timestamping always ignoring phc enabled or not.
Actually the hw timestamping is supported always since ptp clock had been initialized in MC firmware.
Let me just send out the patch for reviewing.
