    Ok, with just __rtl8169_set_mac_addr disabled it works. With netconsole
    disabled, and your phy_reset patch applied it seems to still work. The

    + printk(KERN_ERR "%s: PHY reset failed.\n", dev->name);

    doesn't get printed. If I uncomment __rtl8169_set_mac_addr it stops
    working again. What does it tell us about the original set_mac_address

    I haven't said it's an on-board chip, not a plug-in card. Don't know how
    setting the mac address worked in your configuration, but if it is storred
    in a prom, maybe it is just missing on my board?

    The kernel is not 2.6.19-rc3 either. It is a clone of the powerpc git some
    time shortly after 2.6.19-rc2.
