Note that in this case the driver (r8169) can run without loading a
firmware blob, but the hardware may fail to link-up depending on which
cable and switch is used.  So it is possible that it works well enough
at installation time but is unreliable later.  But it will always
request the firmware blob for a chip that has problems like this.
