Well, I meant something like:
# define DCR_VAL 0x48
# define DCR_VAL 0x49
to avoid changing #elif line every time when we want to support a new
board with byte-mode RTL8019AS. Of course, calculating DCR_VAL at
runtime would be much better but I'm not sure if we can do it ...

The 8390 reset will not skipped. The difference is behavior _after_
detection of no reset ack, isn't it?
