There are two templates for lwip. They are in look in
packages/templates. You will see there is lwip_eth and lwip_ppp. Since
you are trying to write an ethernet driver the choice should be

Come on, reality check. Use your head. Does it make sense to have two
TCP/IP stacks in the same application? No it does not, which is why
you are getting the conflict.

Again, reality check. Do you think lwip works? If so, why would you
need to move code around, implement your own version of support.c?
Surely it makes more sense that everything you need is already there. 

You have the source code, try reading it. All this started because of
the table. Lets do something really simple, like search for
CYG_HAL_TABLE_BEGIN in the lwip code....

~/eCos/anoncvs-clean/packages/net/lwip_tcpip$ grep -r CYG_HAL_TABLE_BEGIN .
./current/src/ecos/init.c:CYG_HAL_TABLE_BEGIN(__NETDEVTAB__, netdev);

So maybe init.c contains similar functionality to support.c in the
bsd_tcpip stack. Doesn't this make much more sense than having to copy
code around, or have two stacks which results in a conflict etc.

OK. Before you ask your next set of questions, please do a reality
check, read the source code, apply logic and reasoning etc... 

I you continue to ask questions without doing some basic research and
trying to understand what is going in, i will ignore you.
