Problems using dual NIC with Linux images

Hello all-

I'm using the i.MX28EVK, and I'm having a hard time bringing up the second NIC consistently. I initially ran into this was the ltib build I made, but then I grabbed the included Linux SD card, and it results in the same behavior. The frustrating thing is that every 4-5 boots or so it works (using the reference image), but the rest of the time it doesn't. When it doesn't work, I get the following in the serial session (from the reference image marked "MX28EVK Linux 110-77224 Rev c"):

/***********************/

eth1: Freescale FEC PHY driver [Generic PHY] (mii_bus:phy_addr=0:01, irq=-1)
PHY: 0:01 - Link is Up - 100/Full
PHY: 0:01 - Link is Down
PHY: 0:01 - Link is Up - 100/Full
PHY: 0:01 - Link is Down
PHY: 0:01 - Link is Up - 100/Full

/***********************/

I thought for a while that it might be a hardware issue, but the the Windows CE reference build works every time I boot it.
