And found in if_igb.c:

	{ 0x8086, E1000_DEV_ID_82576,		PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0},
	{ 0x8086, E1000_DEV_ID_82576_FIBER,	PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0},
	{ 0x8086, E1000_DEV_ID_82576_SERDES,	PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0},

So it might work. And if it doesn't because of some minor problem it might 
be fairly straightforward to get it going as Intel has a driver developer 
who is plugged into the community.
