The software sequence for processing a receive is:
1. The software monitors the receive status bit until it is set to 1 by the AXI Ethernet Lite MAC core and waits for a receive complete interrupt, if enabled.
2. When the status is set to 1, or a receive complete interrupt has occurred, the software reads the entire receive data out of the dual port memory.
3. The software writes a 0 to the receive status bit enabling the AXI Ethernet Lite MAC core to resume receive processing.
