No problem at all. Just I might have been wrong, but after Alan told he
had built the R8169 driver, after ĸen suggested, and Bruce suggested him
to do it, and other listings from LFS and Fedora that Alan provided, I
thought the driver should now be there, loaded.

I hesitated, could not remember anymore if you had written to have been
away for some years or if Alan had written it. I wanted to write that
these weird names might be new and confusing to some who have been away,
and surprised most people here, including myself, when first appeared.
ISTR it was xinglp who first noticed them.

Sorry if it sounded differently.
