Knowing how the various releases of chips are often so common in a
family, maybe it matches the RTL 8169/8110s on a NIC card in one of my
machines? The driver loaded for that is r8169. Give it a try after boot.
If it works, you can pop it into your initrd, update init or configs and
make a new initrd.
