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)
