I guess I will not. But at least hoped to see some io_port_base (?)
reference somewhere. neither ioremap, nor io_port_base is found in
rtl8139.c... I have tried to add some, but the results are still quite
disencouraging. 

Newer version of rtl8139.c (from the Scyld) have pci-scan dependency
which is not compatible with 2.2.14...

 
Sincerely yours,
