Question Possible erroneous manfid in config file?

The Corega PCC-T Ehternet PCMCIA card (NE2000 clone) identifies its manfid as 0xc00f, 0x0000.

 $ cardctl ident 0
   product info: "corega K.K.", "corega Ether PCC-T"
   manfid: 0xc00f, 0x0000
   function: 6 (network)

But in pcmcia-cs 3.1.5, the config file config has another entry which also has manfid as 0xc00f, 0x0000.

 card "Allied Telesyn AT-2800 10/100 Fast Ethernet"
   manfid 0xc00f, 0x0000
   bind "tulip_cb"

Therefore, when a PCC-T Ethernet card is used, pcmcia-cs tried to install tulip_cb modules (instead of pcnet_cs), which results in errors.

Is the manfid for the AT-2800 correct or is something else wrong?
