Multiple Etherenet interfaces

I plan ADSPBF536 system with multiple Ethernet interfaces.

1. The internal CPU MAC + external PHY

2. 3 x SMSC9218 (3 more Ethernet interfaces in WAN mode)

I plan to use smsc911x driver


My questions:

- Does anyone have experience with CONFIG_NET_MULTI and smsc911x?

- How well this will work with the internal CPU MAC enabled?

- Can you suggest alternative solution (probably single chip controller sporting multiple Ethernet interfaces? ) which is going to work better with Blackfin and already have better software support?
