Drivers must be ready to accept NULL from ptp_clock_register() if the
PTP clock subsystem is configured out.

This patch documents that and ensures that all drivers cope well
with a NULL return.

Let's have the basics merged now and work out the actual Kconfig issue 
separately. Richard, if you agree with this patch, I think this could go 
via the netdev tree.
