Well, I'm not talking about the boot loader's support, but abouth the
support in the kernel - I need the this to mount root from. From the
older posts I've seens that there was some secret driver - qdmmc, whicn
supported mmc cards (if I got this correctly). Can I found this somewhere?

Probably. It seems that FreeBSD is trying to read MAC address from the chip's
registers, and I though that if the ethernet works in u-boot then this registers
have been set. I'll investigate this further.

Thanks for the reply!
