I would use the attached patches. The former one is mostly Ivan's one
with some rework of the debug messages. The later checks the eeprom
for its signature.

With these patches the driver notices that it can not get an address
for my 8168b but it works ok with my 8169 after both an hot and a
cold boot. Interestingly enough, the VPD is not enabled on the 8169
during the first boot.

Ivan, can you test them (and fix them afterwards :o) ) ?
