Ever heard the term filibuster? That's what I think happening here: lots of
talk, no work. Also note that so far I'm the only one who has posted a patch,
the rest is verbiage.

The PHY address and MII vs. RMII are things fixed by board circuitry and would
normally be hard-coded. The only reason I added them to BI_GT64260_ETH_CFG was
because I imagined the #ifdef maze that would otherwise eventually grow in the
gt64260_eth driver as people add ports to different boards with these things
wired differently.

As for speed, etc. no other driver I know of requires the bootloader to pass
this info. It's normally set by ethconfig, miitool, etc. Please don't add that
in there, I have no slightest idea what to put in those fields if they were in
the bi_rec.
