Yes, I tftp the kernel, using U-Boot (1.1.2 CVS Head as of 11-20-04).
Haven't looked at the code, but I think it disablesd the FCC Ethernets
(Have seen discussions about htat on u-boot mailing list before)

The patch Stefan Nickl gave to me works perfectly, and all it does is
basically move the fcc_restart.
The kernel was still calling fcc_restart twiche per FCC at startup (one
time on init_fcc_startup, and then again in fcc_open), now it just calls
it twice in fcc_open. Seems to work.
