That's totally tacky on the part of Eiger Labs.
Manufacturer code 4 is Fujitsu, and Fujuitsu product 0x2000 is the
LA501 Ethernet card, so the mbe driver has every right to think it can
attach to it.
[I'm failing to find a more canonical list of PCMCIA manufacturer IDs
than our own sys/dev/pcmcia/pcmciadevs, but the two Fujitsu cards I do
have agree with that file.]
To write a front-end for this thing, you'd want a match function that
looked at more than the vendor and ID - perhaps at the CIS tuples that
contain the descriptive strings - and returns a higher match value
than mbe_pcmcia_match, so it is used preferentially.
