o Replace Realtek re(4) driver with vendor version 1.93

as a user of zotac ci323, can this be added to 17.1.x?

Sure, it was added to 17.1.2 in February:

oh. Yeah, I checked and driver is 1.93. too bad that under long upload saturating my connection network dies and only reset helps. So it is intel 4port card and different build :)
