MCF54418 Ethernet PHY currently supports only one interface configured after startup; i.e., either eth0 or eth1.

We recently updated our kernel from 2.6.29 to 2.6.38.  After doing so, we found the Ethernet PHY currently supports only one interface configured after startup; i.e., either eth0 or eth1.

After comparing the kernel build Configuration of linux-2.6.29 and the sources of linux-2.6.29 and linux-2.6.38, it was found that there is no option to enable the shared PHY for m5441x processor in linux-2.6.38. We need to update the kernel configurations and make files and modify code files to support both interfaces.

Has anyone else encountered this and is there a patch or other solution already available?
