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 2.6.13.1 with sk98lin-8.23.1.3.patch
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)

This patch was to solve an issue in skge, a driver for Marvell Yukon network adapters.
Your hardware is a yukon-2 adapter, you want to use the sky2 driver from
the netdev tree.
Ok, that makes the things clear, thank you.

After quite a lot of fiddling iwth google and git, I found what you are talking about here:

Somehow I missed it on LKML.
Unfortunately the machine with this chipset is heavily used, so I am not very likely to get it off-line for testing.
Will have it in mind and try it if possible.

Kalin.
