Post r8168 or r8169?
I have an ASUS P7P55D mobo which has a Realtek 8112L NIC.

ESXi 5.0/1 uses r8168 8.0.12 drivers, while CentOS 5.3 uses "r8169 2.3LK-NAPA".

Now that the Open Source files and toolchain for ESXi 5.5 have been released, I want to build the latest drivers for the R8112L NIC, and hopefully tulip for a quad port DFE-570TX.

Here is the lspci, lsmod, and dmesg output on CentOS 5.3:


P.S. should i enable ACPI 2.0a, ACPI to APIC, and/or PnP in BIOS? I will need to use passthru in ESXi for a couple of the devices, and am not sure how/if these will affect performance etc.
