Don't match on the 'type' field.  Replace "network" with NULL and just
rely on "ucc_geth" for matching.

u32 please.

Also, rather than reusing 'prop' for both char* and u32 values, which
forces you to use ugly casts, use 2 local variables here.

Ugh.  No bounds checking...

(This is the ugly cast I was talking about.)

...not having bounds checking could result in badness in this array index.

This patch is dangerous as written.

Finally, while using cell-index seems convenient, I think it would be
better to have a lookup table of the index into the BCSR register
block from the UCC base address, which also gives you implicit bounds
checking.
