Hehe, i did that myself :)

Anyway, i have another problem though, namely that even though i do
arch_initcall(mv643xx_eth_add_pds), mv643xx_eth_add_pds is never called, and
in the mv643xx_eth driver itself, altough the module init is done, _probe
never gets called. I will now do a build without any #ifdefs around the
chrp_setup.c stuff (And Christophe Hellwig proposed moving the stuff into
arch/ppc/platform/pegasos_mv643xx_eth.c), and see if that will solve it.

Also going to add the explicit detection of the marvell bridge in the OF tree,
but need to decide what to check for there.
