Well, I'm trying to resolve this by looking at the sources. For those
PCI ids which are present in both drivers, I will use the e100 module
for now unless someone reports problems.

What about cards that have PCI vendor ids not starting with 0x8086,
like this one:
0x10c3 0x1100 "Samsung Semiconductors, Inc.|Smartether100 SC1100 LAN Adapter (i82557B)"

Such an ID is not listed in any of the two drivers id_table[]. I'm
using eepro100 for those cards for now.
