Hi Ulrich,

Thanks for your patch.

With or without the code relayout suggested by Sergei,

Reviewed-by: Niklas Söderlund <niklas.soderlund+renesas@...natech.se>

Also as he points out I used the same pattern for sh_eth while adding

happy to see the fix to allow for changing the MTU when the device is up 
was so simple, yet I could not figure it out ;-) Nice work!
