I'm not all that surprised that you've run into something.  Both the
ethernet and mpsc (uart) drivers for the controllers on that bridge are
pretty much hacks.  They need to be rewritten at some point.  To be
honest, after looking at them, I'm surprised they work as well as they
do.  Its a project just waiting for a volunteer just like you!!   ;)
