FWIW, I experimented a bit by removing code I didn't understand. There
was some hardcoded initialisation in mtk_hw_init() which didn't look
very reassuring.  And what do you know?  Removing it made the second
gmac work in my device.

I've added the removal patch to the branch on github.  And it's attached
here as well.

Comments appreciated.
