I've tested it with an Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 mainboard and I can tell that
the network driver does not work.

At the moment I do not have the mainboard here anymore, I had to give it
to the customer (I've used a PCI network card). But I hope to get
another one.

I did not test the backport kernel for Debian stable.
