Booting Linux using a PlanetCore BootLoader

My problem had to do with the fact that I was not
sending my flash device information in the bd_info
structure and therefore, jffs2 was crapping out. Once
I turned include this info in bd_info, the kernel came
up just fine and started to boot.

I am now trying to do an NFS mount of the root file
system. Looks like the EP8280 uses LXT971A PHY device.
I see that support for this device already exists in
the driver. But I am not sure which GPIO lines are
being used for MII_MDIO and MII_MDCK. I am also not
sure about the PHY_INTERRUPT line. Does anyone have
this info? Thanks much.
