    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.
