[En-Nut-Discussion] NutRegisterDevice Lockup

Using AT91SAM7X256-EK with Ethernut 4.1.9 rc.

I need to attempt DHCP and then fall back to a static address if no DHCP 
response.  I have configured this as requested from the API.  The whole 
program locks if you try to register the ethernet device and there is no 
cable in the port.

This is bad news.  If an ethernet cable gets cut and the device is 
restarted, then it will stall until the device is back on the network.

Is there anyway to prevent this without rewriting NutRegisterDevice() or 
it's subroutines or the Ethernet driver?
