Comment(by tonestone57):

 yes, but I believe the 8139 code should be unblocked from this driver to
 allow support for 8139C+.

 This driver is meant to handle the 8139C+ which is not handled by rtl8139
 (rl) driver. ).  The 8139C+ is closer to 8169 in hardware design.

 From what I see, this driver loads when it detects any 8139 but is
 supposed to unload itself if revision is less than that of 8139C+.
