VID_0B95 is...

0b95  ASIX Electronics Corp.
	1720  10/100 Ethernet
	1780  AX88178
	7720  AX88772

so its likely thats built with an ASIC from ASIX Electronics Corp.

their download apge says the AX88172 is already supported by the Linux 
2.6.x USBNET.C driver ?
they have 2.6.14+ sources for some of their newer chips
