 Sorry, I was mixing things up - I changed the *description* of the
 controller in pcidevs (to "1301", as that's the correct identifier for
 the Fast Ethernet version). The device ID must be 0xed01 in any case, cf.;a=commitdiff;h=9852a485af9827da5130a97f18c9124248c25555
 (it's also what you find in the Linux and Windows drivers from Agere
 itself). I assume it was a typo when you originally committed these changes.
