SubjectUdev coldplugging loads 8139too driver instead of 8139cp
Linux 2.6.24 kernel gives the following messages when udev coldplugging
loads the driver for my NIC:

8139too 0000:00:0b.0: This (id 10ec:8139 rev 20) is an enhanced 8139C+ chip
8139too 0000:00:0b.0: Use the "8139cp" driver for improved performance and stability.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNK1] enabled at IRQ 10
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:0b.0[A] -> Link [LNK1] -> GSI 10 (level, low) -> IRQ 10
8139too 0000:00:0b.0: unknown chip version, assuming RTL-8139
8139too 0000:00:0b.0: TxConfig = 0x74800000
eth1: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xcee8e800, 00:08:02:d8:d5:b9, IRQ 10
eth1: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139'
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNK3] enabled at IRQ 11
PCI: setting IRQ 11 as level-triggered
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:13.2[C] -> Link [LNK3] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11

Kernel driver in use: 8139too

Why does not udev coldpluggin first try to load 8139cp instead of
