Do you know the story behind this Ethernet controller? The various
receive/transmit descriptor definitions are 99% those defined in
drivers/net/ethernet/stmmicro/stmmac/descs.h for the normal descriptor.

The register layout of the MAC looks completely different from a
dwmac100 or dwmac1000 however.
