I've tried that method before and you'll run into nothing but trouble.
Just use what is already there!  Attached is a small patch against
u-boot-1.1.1 (I know, it's old) for net.[ch] to add a "Custom Protocol"
(maybe not the best name) that you can use.  Also attached is a
"send_message.c" file that I have in my board directory with which you
can use as an example of how to use it.  This is all still a work in

I'm working on custom MPC860 based hardware which contains multiple
independent processors that communicate via ethernet (done for legacy
reasons).  This code is used to communicate status from startup and
stand-alone test applications that get run.
