Anyone got eepro100 working on Walnut?

I've been trying to get an Intel eepro100 card working on a
Walnut board.  I've tried both the 1.09 and 1.19 versions of
the driver (eepro100.c).  Initially, both failed the self-
test step.  I was able to get past that one by invalidating
the dcache after issuing the self-test directive.  However,
I now find that the card is neither transmitting nor receiving
reliably.  I get messages like:

   eth1: Unknown receiver error, status=0x5048.  [lots of these]


eth1: Transmit timed out: status 0050  0000 at 2/8 commands 00a00300 00a003000.
eth1: Restarting the chip...
eth1: Command unit failed to mark command 00030000 as complete at 6.

Any suggestions (other than junking this card, which is not an option
for me) most welcome.
