How to boot Kernel using NFS and eth1?

We are using LTIB for a custom MPC8306 board that supports two eth ports (eth0 and eth1). We only can use eth1

Kernel NFS boot works properly using eth0.

U-Boot works properly using eth0 and eth1.


For changing from eth0 to eth1 what we have done has been the following:

1. We have defined two different networks, one for eth0 and the other one for eth1

2. We have changed the parameter netdev = eth1 for the kernel command line


The console mensages are:


IP-Config: Complete:

     device=eth1, addr=, mask=, gw=,

     host=mpc8306etp, domain=, nis-domain=(none),

     bootserver=, rootserver=, rootpath=

Any help would be appreciated.
