cardbus wired NIC trouble, any suggestions?

Hi all!

  I bought a Dlink DGE-660TDE cardbus NIC not thinking that there might
be any trouble with wired NICs and freebsd. It seems to be based on a
fairly common ralink 8110 or 8169 (depending which tool you ask) and
doesn't work on kfreebsd (-8 -9 and -10 with and without firmware

pciconf -lv (freebsd chroot):

re0@pci0:22:0:0:	class=0x020000 card=0x43011186 chip=0x816910ec rev=0x10 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Realtek Semiconductor'
    device     = 'Single Gigabit LOM Ethernet Controller (RTL8110)'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet

  Google turned some stuff up for combinations of chipset / errormessage
and freebsd. However most, if not all points to stuff that is said to at
least be fixed in 8/stable so I wouldn't expect any of these to turn up
on -9.

  Anyone an idea for debugging this further?
