Two weeks after purchasing a NetGear FA-310TX card with a Digital chip, I
ordered another and it came with the "new" Lite-On PNIC chip. Is anyone
working on code to support this chip? I can test/debug.

I've also got a generic card with an RTL-8139 chip. According to the Linux
driver docs, this chip is completely different than the 80x9. Anyone
working on that one? 

To make matters even more frustrating, I've got an SMC EtherPower II that
suffers from the "epic0: timeout" problem.

If anyone has any code to support any of these cards, I'll happily
test/help debug it. Otherwise, I'll probably look at adding support for
the Lite-On to the tulip driver.
