If these network parameters really need default values, it's probably
better to initialize environment variables using
CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS, or something like that.  I expect that almost
every board that U-boot gets loaded on will have these values
overwritten anyway to fit in whatever network it ends up in.
