OK - I guess I will need a little guidance in then: Is there a good
reference board to study and to derive from? And maybe also: What is
missing or not working in that u-boot branch? If I get this interface
right, I just takes some device tree bits to enable this for the kernel
afterward, correct?

Thanks,
Jan

PS: That the GMAC on B-Pi has some TX reliability issues, both with
kernel and u-boot, is known, right? If not, I'll open a separate thread.
