The chip revision number is loaded from the EEPROM, but is normally in
the range of 10-14 for a recent chip.  Thus I believe this isn't a new
ID, but rather a corrupted or misprogrammed EEPROM.

The 'VE' has an ID of 1031.  Is it possible this vendor changed the ID
just to be incompatible?  Who made the motherboard?

I'll send you an tweaked eepro100-diag.c to see if the EEPROM is
otherwise reasonable.
