Default SRU: Fixing network for IGEPv2

SRU Justification:

Impact: When booting current omap 3 kernel at an IGEPv2 board the ethernet driver
is not loaded by default, and even when loaded by hand, it doesn't work because
current kernel defines CONFIG_FIXED_PHY, conflicting with SMSC911X driver.

Fix: The problem is fixed by disabling CONFIG_FIXED_PHY and changing
CONFIG_SMSC911X from module to built-in, for Omap. This is the same solution
provided by bug 618734, fixed at Linaro's kernel (91d9d3).

Testcase: Boot current omap 3 kernel and then call ifconfig -a, you shouldn't
be able to see eth0.
