I've upgraded CPU to rev2.1, board rev0.3.

Applied 5/5 patches onto paulus/powerpc.git at e403149c92a. Here is
the results:

If I use -rxid, then geth not able to transmit anything.
With -txid geth not able to receive anything.

With just -id everything works fine though...

Maybe there should be another condition, in addition to cpu rev2.1?
