Just checked the mvme172 and it has the 82596 on it so this driver 
should work. It has been a while since I looked at this.

I attach my driver support routines for the mvme172 so it is archived on 
the list.

It does contain my private 'rtems_interrupt_catch_with_void' where a 
'void*' is passed back to the interrupt handler. It will not be hard to 
change and bounce to the driver interrupt.

I can send off line the other support files I have for VC2 and MC2 
devices it you need to reference them as this code does contain calls to 

Watch the MAC address setup. It maybe specific to the mvme172.

I have not checked the driver for performance as it was not an issue, 
but it has proved to be stable.

Updating the mvme167 BSP to use libchip would be great.
