Subject: [P.A. Semi] Does the ethernet interface work on your Electra, Chitra,
 Nemo, and Athena board?

Hi Michael,

I checked out the Linux git till the commit 'powerpc-4.3-1'

git checkout ff474e8ca8547d09cb82ebab56d4c96f9eea01ce


Checking out files: 100% (13843/13843), done.
Note: checking out 'ff474e8ca8547d09cb82ebab56d4c96f9eea01ce'.

You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.

If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:

   git checkout -b new_branch_name

HEAD ist jetzt bei ff474e8... Merge tag 'powerpc-4.3-1' of 


The P.A. Semi Ethernet doesn't work with the powerpc-4.3-1 merge. I 
reverted this merge with:

git revert ff474e8ca8547d09cb82ebab56d4c96f9eea01ce -m 1
