[U-Boot-Users] Ethernet and detecting MAC addresses

AFAICT from the source I'm using (1.0.2) none of the ethernet drivers
bother with detecting their own MAC address (if available) and rather 
rely on hard/soft coded addresses. Is this an intentional by design, or
just something unimplemented as yet? If this is something I can implement
for our board here, does anyone have pointers for where is best to splice 
it in without upsetting anyone? :-) I already have a really untidy rough 
and ready hack that we use internally to do this that works, but I'd like 
to implement properly if possible. 

Best Wishes,

Dave Peverley
