net: davinci: emac: Convert to devm_* api
the call of request_irq is replaced by devm_request_irq and the call
of free_irq is removed. But since interrupts are requested in
emac_dev_open, doing ifconfig up/down on the board requests the
interrupts again each time, causing devm_request_irq to fail. The
interface is dead until the device is rebooted.
This patch reverts said commit partially: It changes the driver back
to use request_irq instead of devm_request_irq, puts free_irq back in
place, but keeps the remaining changes of the original patch.
