I know that this is not a patch; the code is local to my board directory and
doesn't substitute the original code of fcc driver.
It's only for suggest the possible solution.
The modify regard only the possibility to use more than one eth interface at
the same time;
looking the u-boot code this solution was already possible for external
device using CONFIG_NET_MULTI.
I have only modified the code for support more than one fcc (using variable
instead define) and adding some function needed in my board.
Do you think that someone need this version of driver ??
In this case I'll modify it for general using and I'll submit to you like a
