Hi there. I recently upgraded the kernel in my Efika, (mpc5200b system-on-a-chip), and the Ethernet has stopped working. The interface shows up fine in ifconfig, but it doesn't send or receive anything. The only relevant entry I can see in dmesg is this one:
Code:
 : can't find "phy-handle" in device tree, using 7-wire mode

I've got everything related to "PHY" or "MII" enabled in the kernel, except for the chipset-specific options which don't apply to me, and CONFIG_FIXED_PHY which is a module. But even after loading the module the interface still doesn't work.

Everything worked fine in 2.6.20. What's been broken since then?
