Well, I did test it, but skge didn't even find the hardware :-(
No device was created, no dmesg output on load.
Instead I am running with sk98lin-
The MB is ASUS P5GDC-V-Deluxe and the the on-board NIC:

# lspci -v -s 02:00.0
0000:02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd.
88E8053 Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 15)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Marvell 88E8053 Gigabit

Memory at cfffc000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
I/O ports at d800 [size=256]
Expansion ROM at cffc0000 [disabled] [size=128K]

Queue=0/1 Enable-
Capabilities: [e0] #10 [0011]

I am not sure it is supposed to be used with the skge driver, but I
thought it will work... Some ASUS boards apparently have problems
with the VPD being broken, but I am not sure how to check that.
