[U-Boot-Users] smc 9111 driver

A classic ethernet mixup is the bit ordering of the MAC address.  The 
ethernet sends the data LSB-first so, when you set your MAC, you have to 
bit-reverse the bytes from what you would normally think.  This is horribly 
confusing.  Suggestions: Sniff your transmissions with ethereal and see if 
the MAC address ethereal is showing is what you expect to see.  Bit-reverse 
the MAC you program in and see if it starts working.
