James, this is super helpful and, yes, I should have said 8169. Seems like the gizmo ought to work for my needs as well, then, if the ethernet IP is from the rtl8169?
On http://www.gizmosphere.org/why-gizmo/gizmoboard/ hold your mouse over the PCB picture at the bottom, a bit below the VGA port. Somewhere you'll mouse over "Realtek RTL8111DL Gigabit Ethernet controller (on back)".
So It's actually a separate chip, since the AMD on-chip stuff seems to be a not very useful broadcom chip. (see Jens' comments on gerrit: http://review.coreboot.org/#/c/2581/)
Most AMD boards seem to use a separate chip, usually realtek, for that reason.
Ah, thanks, Patrick, the entire ethernet trainwreck is now paged back in to memory.
