MIcroblaze FreeRTOS - Temac - Support

I have been testing the FreeRTOS-Port for Microblaze. To my regret this port uses the EthernetLite component.
I have seen that the low level drivers are also ported for the Ethernetlite-MAC (SP605.c and ethernetif.c) and don’t use the Xilinx-“ecosystem”.
Has anybody some hints or already written some code how to implement a low-level drivers for the 1Gbit-TEMAC in connection with FreeRTOS ?

I did look at adding support for the faster MAC when I produced the demo, but found the Xilinx somewhat intertwined with the lwIP code, and separating the two was not straight forward.  That was some time back though, it might be different now.  In any case, I don’t see any reason why with a bit of effort the driver could not be extracted, or simply written from scratch from the manual.
