The intel IDs at least are supported by eepro100; there's no reason that e100
can't support them, I'd think.
e100 _only_ gets support for:
eepro100 , in theory, supports more NIC but _intel guys_ said that it's not
possible because they are special hardware:
and these are strangers for eepro100 and e100 drivers:
Should this be assigned back to me, or is this for hwdata?
it's for hwdata guy(s).
And they need to get a lot of PCI ID's from _all_ net and scsi drivers
because hwdata asignations are very old.
Well, hopefully most new drivers just use their own device tables. In
theory, lots of the pcitable lines can just be removed.
e100 assignations removed in CVS.
