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.
