[U-Boot-Users] Device tree and u-boot passing MAC address questions

I'm noticing some different behavior in between 1.3.0RC3 and the
latest 85xx git repo regarding MAC addresses. With 1.3.0RC3 and
before, my mac address defined for CONFIG_ETH2ADDR et all got passed
into the blob I sent to my 2.6.24RC2 kernel via u-boot. Now, the
address doesn't get set and the kernel sees "00:00:00:00:00:00" for my
eth2 and of course it doesn't work.
I noticed at least one other recent case of this issue, and the
'solution' was to code in the mac address into the dts file - I tried
that and it does work. However, what's a proper solution for passing a
MAC address to the kernel from the latest u-boot?
