setenv ethaddr <some random MAC address>
setenv ipaddr <a valid IP of the net the NIC is connected to>

seems to help. but indeed thats not usable in the automated SD card boot we are using since it would enforce to type in the IP each time you boot through serial console ... automated setting of the MAC and initializing of the NIC needs to work as it does under redboot.
