[U-Boot] [PATCH] Add CONFIG_GMAC_TX_DELAY=4 for OlinuXino Lime2

This change is required to get GBIT Ethernet to work
reliably on my board. Without CONFIG_GMAC_TX_DELAY=4, the connection
suffers severe packet loss and SSH becomes unusable.

--- ping statistics ---
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 19842ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.260/0.334/0.527/0.038 ms

I have also tried CONFIG_GMAC_TX_DELAY=3, which still
yielded 11-13% packet loss.

It's quite possible that A20-OLinuXino-Lime_defconfig also requires
this change, but I do not have a board for testing.

I have tested this change on u-boot 2016.01.
