Well yes, I guess we have.  But if you just want to get it working, put in
a dummy that does nothing; it shouldn't be called in normal use by eCos'
TCPIP stack.

(It's used to use the driver in a polled mode for debug stubs, with no
interrupts.  Like, you call send, then repeatedly poll until you're done,
and call it from time to time in idle time &c, instead of interrupts).
