The preliminary VT86C100A datasheet says its device ID is 0x6100,
though it also says "VT86C100A Rhine," not Rhine-II.
I'm not sure if VT3043 has ever been released either.

Linux driver says:
>> The VT86C100A manual is not reliable information.
and they treat an ID 0x3043 as VT86C100A, though.

(BTW, Linux driver says Rhine-II and newer chips have
 more efficient hardware, which we don't handle..)

Anyway, there is no functional difference between
VT3043 and (non-existent?) VT86C100, so there is no
problem except dmesg and pcictl(8) output.
