Not mine, which is an "Intel RRO/100 Lan+Modem 56 Cardbus II" MBLA3456.

Huh, the host bridge is connected to cardbus0?

According to a linux boot disk the manfid of the card is: 0x0089, 0x1103

It should be an i82559 card, at least Intel says that it is based on
that chip.

Yes, I know that this is a different id then the one we have in cardbusdevs.
