First, we need to see if this is going to fit with everything else in
2_4/2_4_devel and then it will get implemented.

Its not that much work:

1) Make a function (or two) like what's already been talked about to search for
bi_recs of certain types (starting from a specified location so you don't keep
finding the same one).

2) Change parse_bootinfo to use that function but only look up truly generic ones

3) Change the gt64260_enet driver to search for the ones specific to it (and
remove the code for it that is in parse_bootinfo in your patch)
