Subject: [RFC][NET] Alignment in mv643xx_eth

The driver contains this little piece of candy:

#if defined(CONFIG_DMA_NONCOHERENT) || defined(CONFIG_NOT_COHERENT_CACHE)
#define ETH_DMA_ALIGN           L1_CACHE_BYTES
#else
#define ETH_DMA_ALIGN           8
#endif

Any reason why we're not using dma_get_cache_alignment() instead?
