fec problem on mpc8xx

Hi,

I am porting linux 2.6 on a custom MPC8xx processor based board that
uses FEC with LXT971 on the MII bus.

I am not able to bring up the eth0 interface. I have tried using both
the drivers:
1.      Generic FEC driver (FEC_ENET under arch/ppc/8xx_io/fec.c)
2.      Freescale FEC driver (FS_ENET under
drivers/net/fs_enet/fs_enet-main.c)


I have posted the kernel log and ifconfig outputs of both below:
1.      Generic FEC driver (FEC_ENET under arch/ppc/8xx_io/fec.c

# ifconfig eth0
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:A0:B0:C0:D0:E0
         inet addr:192.168.188.90  Bcast:192.168.188.255
Mask:255.255.255.0
         BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
         RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
         RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
         Base address:0xe00

# ifconfig eth0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device

2.      Freescale FEC driver (FS_ENET under
drivers/net/fs_enet/fs_enet-main.c)

# ifconfig eth0
ifconfig: eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found


Could you please let me know:
1.      Which driver tree is to be used (fs_net or fec_enet)
2.      Is there any board specific initialization required for FEC?
3.      Anything that is missed out based on the logs (below)?
4.      Seems like the eth0 device is not getting created. Any
pointers?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
AP
