gianfar: Fix boot hangs while bringing up gianfar ethernet

Ira Snyder found that commit 8c7396aebb68994c0519e438eecdf4d5fa9c7844
"gianfar: Merge Tx and Rx interrupt for scheduling clean up ring" can
cause hangs. It's because there was removed clearing of interrupts in
gfar_schedule_cleanup() (which is called by an interrupt handler) in
case when netif scheduling has been disabled. This patch brings back
this action and a comment.
