Within the last few months, I purchased a D-Link DGE-530T card, expecting
that it would Just Work under NetBSD.  It was not detected by default.
It turns out that the card itself is labeled REV-B1.



The following changes to pcidevs and if_skreg.h (both in /sys/dev/pci)
are sufficient to make the card generally work for me.  Of course, these
patches are not appropriate to be integrated into the NetBSD source tree
as-is because they remove support for the previous model.

(I was able to determine these numbers from reading dmesg output, and
assuming that the new numbers would work fine with the old driver.)

I have gotten one message that says

sk0: watchdog timeout

but only one of these with an uptime of 15 days, using the interface fairly
extensively, so perhaps that message is not a major problem.  Or maybe it
indicates that there is still some subtle problem lurking that should be
further investigated.
