Hi, beware the 2 controllers are different. If you don't read the
register map carefully you miss important points like that the chunk for
allocating buffer is 256 in the former chip and 1024 in the later.
Anyway if there are 2 different drivers there is obviously a reason so
go for the SMC91111. :-)
