It might just be using a PCI ID that the rl driver doesn't know about. 
Run "pciconf -lv", find your card, and note the chip= value.  The first
4 digits are the device ID, and the last 4 are the vendor ID. Add them
to /sys/pci/if_rlreg.h (search for VENDORID) and to /sys/pci/if_rl.c
(search for rl_devs), rebuild your kernel, and reboot.  If it works,
submit a pr with the info so it can be added to the next release.
