Where is this init sequence in the driver? I searched in the code and didn't find something that could satisfy, then I took the r8169.c, put it in the source tree, applied my patch, changed synchronize_sched(); to synchronize_kernel(); because the symbol was unknown and then I could turn eth1 on and assign it an ip address but the rx and tx count never grew and when I turned eth0 down (a 8139 card) eth1 didn't reply to ping anymore.
