Description

This pull request (on top of the 5 branch) breaks the mv643xx driver into two parts

  • low-level driver; independent from BSD
  • legacy BSD networking support layer

The first is independent from RTEMS' networking support and always part of the BSP (can e.g., be used to implement low-level ethernet access). The second builds on top of the first and is only enabled when RTEMS is configured with legacy BSDnet support.

Note: the driver design has not changed; there have always been two layers; this patch just splits the code into separate files. It is a necessary preparation for a new rtems-libbsd/nexus driver (which is submitted in a separate ticket)
