Antoine,

first of all, thanks a lot for providing this driver! I checked the
usual Marvell datasheets to see where the ethernet IP in Berlin comes
from and I hate to say it but it very much looks like PXA168, see [1]
A.22. Also, there is already a driver for pxa168_eth available.

I'll test and review you current driver on BG2 asap, but I guess it
should be merged with pxa168_eth _if_ the registers are really
compatible.

Sebastian
