stmmac: Add properties for transmit and receive fifo sizes
The Synopsys stmmac fifo sizes are configurable, and need to be known in order to configure certain controller features. This patch adds tx-fifo-depth and rx-fifo-depth properties to the stmmac document file. Signed-off-by: Vince Bridgers <vbridger@opensource.altera.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

Child nodes of the Ethernet controller are typically the individual PHY devices
connected via the MDIO bus (sometimes the MDIO bus controller is separate).
