File eepro100.tar.bz2 (added to this mail) contains everything
needed to add 3 new PCI network device (all similar to EEPRO100):

        added two binaries needed for EEPRO100
        split entries for PCI network devices (1 line / entry, better
merging with CVS)
       added prototypes for EEPRO100
       added new PCI network models: i82551, i82557b, i82559er

    EEPRO100 PCI network emulation

hw/eeprom93xx.c, hw/eeprom93xx.h:
    EEPROM emulation, needed for EEPRO100 (and others)

I just finished running these tests using a PC host running Debian GNU

* compilation for all QEMU target architectures: ok
* cross compilation (Windows) for all QEMU target architectures: ok
* functional test: ok

The last test was started like this:

i386-softmmu/qemu -L pc-bios --net nic,model=i82559er --net tap /dev/hda

Networking was tested using ping and ssh connection from emulated system
to host.

I did not apply your patch, because I cannot test it (it needs a system with
different endianess). Your feedback is welcome
