This isn't feedback on your patch as much as on "new-emac" in general:

Isn't this the case where there should really be device tree properties
instead? If you had an "ibm,emac-has-axon-stacr" property in the device
node, then you don't have to modify the driver for every new board out
there. Same for the other device properties, of course.

I thought this was what having the device tree was all about. :(
