Hi Harald,

Great work! I'll test it tomorrow on a v1 board.

If you check, you'll find your mac address to be different under coreboot.
That's because for mcp55-based nics, the mac address is stored in the bios
rom image.

I have a script that I use to binary patch coreboot rom images with a
different mac address. It's attached.
