The Movidis X16 bootloader doesn't enable the mdio bus.  The first
patch fixes this by enabling the mdio bus when the driver is
initialized.

Also the addresses of the PHYs was unknown for this device.  The
second patch adds the corresponding PHY addresses.

With both patches applied I can successfully use all eight Ethernet
ports.

Please consider for 2.6.34.  Since Octeon is an embedded MIPS SOC it
is unlikely to break the kernel for any workstations.  Any or all of
these could be considered for merging via Ralf's linux-mips.org tree.

Thanks,

David Daney (2):
  netdev: phy/mdio-octeon: Enable the hardware before using it.
  staging: octeon-ethernet: Use proper phy addresses for Movidis
    hardware.
