Hello list,

inside the automatic U-Boot patch tracking system a new ticket
[DNX#2006040142000321] was created:

> We have a board where the ethernet is on a plugin module and may or
> may not be present at boot time.  If eth_initialize() doesn't detect the
> network
> and a net command is run the system crashes.  This patch adds a function
> to cmd_net.c to check the availability of the ethernet device before
> trying to
> access it.  If the net device is not found it will print a message
> and return -1.
> * Add check to cmd_net functions to make sure ethernet device is valid
> before calling Net_Loop()
