eepro.c port list

I've noticed that the eepro.c file defines the portlist to be
probed by the card at startup with jumps of 40. My computer has
Windows95 as a secondary OS :(. Win95 automatically changes the
I/O port automatically every time it starts to the lowest port avaliable
above 200 (usually 210 or 230). This means that the kernel can't, and
doesn't, find the card. Every new kernel source I get (unless it's a
patch) I have to edit the eepro.c file and enter additional ports. Is
there a special reason that eepro has these jumps. If not would be a good
thing to enter all the possible ports the card can be in.
