    Ok, that's obviously not good. I checked the Realtek driver for
    8101E (version r8101-1.009.00) and while it doesn't do any
    8-bit writes to register 0x82 it does perform 32-bit writes to
    register 0x80 (EPHYAR) to communicate with the PHY. I have no
    idea what that 8-bit write does except it breaks the chipset in
    my LG P300...

    How does the kernel identify your chipset upon driver load?
    (grep for XID)
