I don't think you need to pass different information around; in fact,
all these probably need exactly the same information... There  is  no
inherent  difference between the ethernet interfaces on a 8xx or on a
82xx. But both the 8xx and 82xx come with two pretty  much  different
onchip ethernet controllers (SCC/FEC on 8xx, SCC/FCC on 82xx).

So   should   we   have    BI_8XX_SCC_ETH_CFG,    BI_8XX_FCC_ETH_CFG,
BI_8260_SCC_ETH_CFG, BI_8260_FCC_ETH_CFG, ...? Certainly not.

I don't  know  the  GT64260  that  well;  what  makes  it's  ethernet
interface  so  much  different  from all other devices that it cannot
share a common BI_ETH_CFG?
