I can, but I don't want to :-)

Adding CONFIG_HAS_ETH1 is OK with me, but I think it is  a  very  bad
idea  to  hardwire  the  MAC  addresses  -  especially  since this is
write-protected. You will not be able to ever use two such boards  in
the same network.

I suggest to resubmit without the CONFIG_ETH*ADDR settings.

Best regards,
