Unfortunately we had to do a lot of refactoring to support the new
hardware architecture (the SFC9000 family) alongside the SFC4000, as
much of the MAC, PHY and board driver code is implemented in firmware on
the new chips.  The upside of this is that we will rarely need to ask
you to pull any changes to support new boards.
