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?

None Well, one of them is wrong...

I'll comment out the Allied Telesyn entry in future PCMCIA releases,
until it is sorted out.  We'll need to get product info strings for
the Allied Telesyn card.
