Thanks! I found almost only cards with some flavours of chip RTL8111:
RTL8111E, RTL8111G, RTL8111H. re(4) mentions only 8111 (with no suffix)
and just in the name of the manpage.

src/sys/dev/pci/pcidevs has this line:

product REALTEK RT8168		0x8168	8168/8111 10/100/1000 Ethernet

I wonder if the suffixes E/G/H are important, and if these flavours of
Realtek 8111 chip would actually be supported by re(4).
