I just searched this thread in my MUA and notified that Andreas Beckmann
already filled an ITP on 20.09.2011 @ #642198

@Andreas and Dmitry:
You may cooperate on packaging or decide, who wants to maintain it in
the future.

I still think this driver should be added as alternative driver to the
archive, until r8169 will do its job for the promoted PCIIDs correctly.
