Topcliff PCH is the platform controller hub that is going to be used in
Intel's upcoming general embedded platform.

Explanation is added to help.

This deletes.
Since a standard logging is used

This driver is designed be easy to add other PHY.
The api.c/h wraps the interface of PHY.

<masa>
"pch_gbe_regs.h" shows the register of MAC.
"pch_gbe_regs.h" is merged into "pch_gbe.h".
