Feedback Corega 10M EtherII PCC-T failed detection

I bought a Corega 10M PCMCIA PCC-T card @ Linux Expo 2000.

Plugged it in and got an Oops from CardMgr loading tulip_cb drivers.

Turns out this card isn't in the config file (only a slight difference in version info from another Corega card though)

Biggest problem is the manuf ID it reports clashes with another card in the database.

It was trivial for me to add an entry for this card (it uses pcnet_cs like the other Corega cards already defined) and comment out the clashing card, and once that's done the card works without problems.

Info returned from cardctl ident for Corega :-

Socket 1:
  product info: "corega K.K.", "corega EtherII PCC-T"
  manfid: 0xc00f, 0x0000
  function: 6 (network)

config entry for manfid clash :-

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

Entry I added to config :-

card "Corega PCC-T EtherII"
  version "corega K.K.", "corega EtherII PCC-T"
  bind "pcnet_cs"
