Are there actually any instances where eepro100 is actually preferred over
e100?  I'm thinking that we should probably disable eepro100, or figure
out a way to force e100 in place of eepro100.  Granted, that's probably
something discover/hotplug should already be doing, but for people who've
hardcoded eepro100 into /etc/modules or something...
