That is interesting. What do you mean by that? Although SROM controller
can access external memory (SRAM, ROM) but it is not exactly a bus. How
is the SMSC9111 "connected"? What interface or protocol is used?

I am sorry but I cannot figure out what exactly are you talking about.
The Device Tree is the glue to describe the board, the hardware and its
configuration. Please elaborate a little more.
