I do not understand so far while it hangs only for eth1. My device only has 
one ethernet MAC, so I could not notice the problem. Looking at this close, 
there are a couple of u32 const* usages in au1000_mdio_{read,write} which are 
looking wrong to me now. Can you try to remove these?

If you think this is another issue, I will fix it in another patch.
