Build results:
total: 149 pass: 149 fail: 0
Qemu test results:
total: 490 pass: 489 fail: 1
Failed tests:
mcf5208evb:m5208:m5208evb_defconfig:initrd

TL;DR: Patches / reverts needed to fix known regressions

Revert "net: fec: Use a spinlock to guard `fep->ptp_clk_on`"
Revert "fec: Restart PPS after link state change"
revert b353b241f1eb
revert f79959220fa5
Rationale:
The patches result in various tracebacks and crashes.
https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20220827160922.642zlcd5foopozru@pengutronix.de/

The need to revert those patches has been discussed repeatedly,
so going into details seems pointless.
