Subject: D-Link DGE-530T and r8169.c

Good morning,

It appears that D-Link has changed the ID of the DGE-530T NIC from 
1186:4300: to 1186:4302: which means the RTL8169 driver in the linux 
kernel does not recognize newer DGE-530T cards.

At link 199 of r8169.c is the following:

 	{ PCI_DEVICE(PCI_VENDOR_ID_DLINK,	0x4300), 0, 0, RTL_CFG_0 },

While I changed the 0x4300 to 0x4302 and recompiled the kernel to get the 
driver to recognize the card I believe that the appropriate fix would be 
to add the following line immediately after:

 	{ PCI_DEVICE(PCI_VENDOR_ID_DLINK,	0x4302), 0, 0, RTL_CFG_0 },

Since I only have the one machine here on which to test this driver I am 
hoping that any further testing needed can be done by someone so that this 
can make its way inte the kernel source code.
