Well, the ocotea has an interesting "feature" related to the way the
ethernet PHY an EMAC interact which I haven't dealt with in the new EMAC

I -think- the Taishan I have may have the same issue though, in which
case I won't need it, but if not, I could have good use (or Josh in
Rochester) for one of these.
