Using it with the second chunk ignored.

The current vr driver works fine for me but the interface is only slightly 
loaded. It got stuck very rarely. Since I can't reproduce this, I don't know 
whether it's fixed.

vr0: <VIA VT6102 Rhine II 10/100BaseTX> port 0xa000-0xa0ff mem 
0xf0000000-0xf00000ff at device 18.0 on pci0
vr0: Quirks: 0x0
vr0: Revision: 0x74
miibus0: <MII bus> on vr0
vr0: Ethernet address: 00:0e:a6:40:3f:d0
vr0: [ITHREAD]

Works fine so far.
