Ok, I have determined that my problem lies in user-land, not
the kernel.  Using the same kernel, but with a more elaborate
start-up scripts/root filesystem (those from DENX ELDK-1.0)
it works fine.

Using my minimal rootfs, with busybox, tinylogin, it doesn't
work.  Is there anything needed to get the broadcom 5703 going
besides ifconfig?

Well, I now have a root filesystem that works and one that
doesn't so I can slowly make one more like the other until
I see which piece is the culprit/magic.
