Perhaps that's true of the DFE-530TX.  The DFE-530TX+, which we
have, is based on the RealTek chipset.  From /proc/pci on the
relevant machine:

  Bus  0, device   7, function  0:
    Ethernet controller: Realtek 8139 (rev 16).
      Medium devsel.  Fast back-to-back capable.  IRQ 10.  Master
        Capable.  Latency=64.  Min Gnt=32.Max Lat=64. 
      I/O at 0xe800 [0xe801].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xfedffe00 [0xfedffe00].
