Having reconsidered that I think it may be better to do something like in the
patch below.

This is a regression fix, so please apply if there are no objections.

Thanks,

Subject: gianfar: Do not call device_set_wakeup_enable() under a spinlock

The gianfar driver calls device_set_wakeup_enable() under a spinlock,
which causes a problem to happen after the recent core power
management changes, because this function can sleep now.  Fix this
by moving the device_set_wakeup_enable() call out of the
spinlock-protected area.
