This driver seems to be used by the pxa168 GuruPlug board, and according
to the pxa168 datasheet the flow control status is reported as above (I
checked before sending this patch). I used the software manual
referenced in Documentation/arm/Marvell/README.

This is also the case for the Ethernet controller of the Berlin SoCs.

I could only test on the Berlin BG2Q. I can't be sure this was not a
hardware bug, but at least this is consistent with the pxa168 platform
using the driver. All other registers controlling this flow control
capability also enable on 0.
