8139cp: Try the "8139too" driver instead.


I bought a Surecom EP-428X PCCard. It has a RTL8139C (not C+) chip. I
use cardmgr as I also have pcmcia cards for my laptop. So and now to the
problem. When cardmgr starts I got following output:

PCI: Assigned IRQ 9 for device 00:06.0
PCI: Assigned IRQ 9 for device 00:06.1
Yenta IRQ list 0c90, PCI irq9
Socket status: 30000007

8139cp: 10/100 PCI Ethernet driver v0.3.0 (Sep 29, 2002)
8139cp: pci dev 05:00.0 (id 10ec:8139 rev 10) is not an 8139C+ compatible chip
8139cp: Try the "8139too" driver instead.

For no known reason the driver 8139cp is loaded and barfs that he is not
responsible for this device. When the machine is ready I load 8139too
via modprobe and everything works perfectly. lspci -vvv says following:

05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C (rev 10)

I'm intended to write a bugreport but I'm not sure who is "responsible"
for this bug. pcmcia-cs, kernel or even modutils?

So long and thanks for the help
