NET: Fix system hanging if NET device is not installed
If we try to boot from NET device, NetInitLoop in net.c will be invoked. If NET device is not installed, eth_get_dev() function will return eth_current value, which is NULL. When NetInitLoop is called, "eth_get_dev->enetaddr" will access restricted memory area and therefore cause hanging. This issue is found on Tegra30 Cardhu platform after adding CONFIG_CMD_NET and CONFIG_CMD_DHCP in config header file. Signed-off-by: Jim Lin <> Tested-by: Stephen Warren <>
