BTW There are some  known issues with BeagleBone and ethernet, so look here first
and see if your BB is one that needs you to cut a trace.


Search for "R219" and make absolutely sure that you have the board
with the issue.

That being said there are definitely issues that a bunch of us are trying
to address in the cpsw driver, so, bug reports etc. are most welcome.
