Attached is a patch which enables jumbo frames on tulip based boards. It  
makes it possible to set an MTU of up to 2025 bytes. However, testing
against an NE3200 board using 10base-2 shows assorted problems when going
above 2018 bytes (for frames without VLAN tags). The problems show up as
framing errors, bad CRCs and such (in both directions).

The patch is against 2.4.22-bk45.
