Hi Sven.

The mv64x60 is a Marvell host bridge with some I/O ctlrs including 3 
enet cltrs.  There are virtually identical versions for MIPS (called 
mv64x4x) and PPC (called mv64x6x).  The mv643xx_eth driver was 
originally written by the MIPS folks, as you note, but Dale Farnsworth 
has spent a lot of time making it work on both MIPS and PPC.  The code 
you see in the mv64x60.c file is a part of that.  I believe that Dale's 
patch(es) have been accepted and are queued to go into the mainline tree 
at some point.

Did I answer your question?
