Earlier, I asked for help with a Linksys EG1032 gigabit NIC.
The current version of this card uses a Marvell 88E8003 chip,
instead of the National Semiconductor chip used previously.
It turns out that the sk(4) driver works with this chip, both
in 4.11 and 5.4.
I'm currently using my new Linksys card successfully in a
mid-April 5.4-STABLE testing system, via the "sk" driver built
into the generic kernel. In my 4.11-RELEASE box, I'm using
the "sk" driver as well (this time loaded as a kernel module)
to handle the Marvell 88E8001 chip on the system's Asus A7N8X-E
Here are the relevant lines of output during system startup on
the 4.11-RELEASE box.
