ne.c has its well-sorted list of addresses to probe at, and if you use
it as a "non-module", it will find the PCI cards, too.

: The RealTek RTK8029 cards are _PCI_ so they must be probed, and hence
: the current driver cannot be used as a module. This should be documented.

This is wrong; due to a decision of the author, ne.c will not auto-probe
for cards if used as a module. But you can always say something like
insmod ne.c io=0x6000
and the module will find your PCI card.
