I think the important question is why is the MAC address changing? Since
the ethernet interface on a PowerQUICC design is actually provided by one
of the four integrated interfaces that give the chip its name, it's hard
to see how an ancillary part could be causing this.
My suspicion is that the QUICC registers are getting corrupted by the MTD
code driving the NAND device in some way. That's making the MAC address
come out wrong and also stopping the device producing any real ethernet
I've seen similar problems with IDE interfaces on PowerQUICC devices in
