How to use L2 switch on Vybrid processor ?

I'm trying to use L2 switch on Mvf6x-TWR with linux.

For kernel compilation, I changed this two parameters on menuconfig :

   + Drivers for National Semiconductor dp8348 dp83849 PHYs => driver for the TWR-SER2 chip

   + Ethernet switch controller (Freescale Coldfire and Vybrid platform) => add ethernet L2 switch driver

After rebooting, i can see that the switch is init on my screen :


     Ethernet Switch Version 1.0

     eth_switch_probe: ethernet switch init

     fsl l2 switch MII Bus: probed

     fsl l2 switch MII Bus mdiobus(0) register ok.

     eth0: ethernet switch 00:04:9f:00:b3:49


My problem is that it seems to not work, and with ifconfig, the ETH0 iface does not exist.  Does someone know about this?

Thank you.
