I'm not sure it's closer than before. It couldn't find the ethernet address
while before it didn't even check it (if I read the code properly).

Can you add some printf() to ne_pcmcia_attach() to see what's going on ?
The interesting part if between again: and the last 'goto again'.
it should enter the (ne_dev->flags & NE2000DVF_DL10019) if, and
call ne_pcmcia_dl10019_get_enaddr(). Either ne_pcmcia_dl10019_get_enaddr()
didn't work, or it didn't return the mac address we expect.

You could also try changing {0x00, 0xc0, 0x0c} with {0xff,0xff,0xff} in
the PCMCIA_CIS_RELIA_RE2408T entry.
