[U-Boot-Users] ethact, ethprim and NET_MULTI

I am trying to bring up a system with two ethernet interfaces, and
don't seem to be able to understand the intended behavior of the
multiinterface system.

Say when one tries pinging over an interface which is down, u-boot
starts browsing over registered ethernet interfaces, making the next
one in the list active and so on. So, after the ping attempt the
current interface value could change.

Is this really what is required - changing the active interface with
the user unaware of it?

What are the semantics of the environment variables "ethprim" and
"ethact"?.I tried to look through the documentation, and found

Any help would be highly appreciated,
