How would that command line be supplied? Other architechtures
(such as ARM) allows the commandline to be specified in 
kernelconfig and I will probably do the same for CRIS some day. 
To modify the ethernetdriver to allow the MAC address to be 
set by a command line option is simple.

I also did this a couple of months ago but didn't have any trouble with the 
consle. Worked fine. The MAC was a bigger issue though, had to delve into the 
ethernet driver to change the default MAC set from there. However, this is a 
realy ugly hack. Best would be if Axis made their kernel accept a kernel 
commandline, or second best, if it could be set at kernel compile time.
