Apparently this is the badly designed ethernet controller in question.
Why they make it claim to be a bridge, I don't know. It does match the
pci mappings in the kernel.

Here it is again, also matches the pci mappings in the kernel. 

The full list of pci mappings for the forcedeth controller in 2.6.8 are:

10de01c3 # already listed in discover1-data
10de0066 # already listed
10de00d6 # already listed
10de0086 # currently "unknown"
10de008c # currently "unknown"
10de00e6 # currently "unknown"
10de00df # currently "unknown"
10de0056 # currently "unknown"
10de0057 # currently "unknown"
10de0037 # currently "unknown"
10de0038 # currently "unknown"

I think we should change all of the unknown ones to use forcedeth.
