Hi all,

I am using an at91rm9200ek type board which has got a davicom9161 chip
for ethernet. I am not able to write the MAC address or read it from any
register ( Specifically from u-boot).

Even though the environment variables are set accordingly.

setenv ethaddr 00:11:22:33:44:55

While booting from the flash the kernel shows the message
at91_ether: Your bootloader did not configure a MAC address.

While booting from a NFS server the kernel does not show this  kind of

Thanks in advance.
