It seems this was applied. Unfortunately this breaks things on FreeBSD.
There seem to be multiple issues.
First, the intel document says the 82551, 82550, 82559 models are all
supersets of the 82558. Or in other words: they all support this
Only the 82557 does not.
But then even for that the FreeBSD driver will fail.
The reason for that is this line:
    eeprom_contents[0xa] = 0x4000;
the value here must be 0x01000 for all 82557 models it seems.
