This may be the "Rsltek 8139D" (I am not wrong on the name ;) or
something similar to Silan's 92301?  It's quite different from
Realtek's 8139.  You can first try your luck with rl(4).  If it did
not work, I could do a quick "slash" porting of a fbsd4 driver (the
fbsd4 driver was published by Silan in public domain?) or do you want
to port that driver :)?
