I tried this version. I still didn't get it working, but some

What I changed is:

* call eth_send() instead of edev->send directly. This makes sure the
  carrier is initialized correctly
* implemented pico_zalloc as memalign(32, x); memset(ptr, 0 x); Some
  drivers (such as fec_imx.c I tested with) need bigger alignment for
  network packets to be able to do DMA transfers.
* move picotcp_net_init from coredevice_initcall to device_initcall.
  In my case the poller infrastructure is not available during
  coredevice_initcall and barebox crashes. Maybe the poller
  infrastructure could be made more robust here, but we don't want to
  to networking in this early stage anyway, right?
* select POLLER is missing

With this I get:

barebox at Phytec phyCORE-i.MX27:/ ifconfig eth
Assigned ipv4 to device eth
barebox at Phytec phyCORE-i.MX27:/ picoping
eth0: 100Mbps full duplex link detected

 ---- Ping timeout!!!

I haven't investigated what's happening here.
