Please do not use my Reported-by: line. It is new patch not any bug which needs to be fixed.
Patches are based on my origin version that's why it is fine to be just in copyright.

Joe, Wolfgang: I don't agree with this driver because it is doing the same things as my origin
version but on 800 lines instead of 1860lines. The next thing is that plb bus on Xilinx fpgas
is getting obsolete.

I am not going to add it to my microblaze custodian tree.
If you like this patch please add it to u-boot-net tree or directly to mainline.
In that case you have my ACK for microblaze patches 2-4/4 and please apply them too.

I have applied one patch to my custodian master branch which is required by this patchset
(also fix another problem with axi emac). I have also asked Wolfgang for merging this when
