SubjectRE: [PATCH net-next v2] net/usb/r8153_ecm: support ECM mode for RTL8153

I export rtl_get_version() from r8152. It would return none zero
value if r8152 could support this device. Both r8152 and r8153_ecm
would check the return value of rtl_get_version() in porbe().
Therefore, if rtl_get_version() return none zero value, the r8152
is used for the device with vendor mode. Otherwise, the r8153_ecm
is used for the device with ECM mode.

It seems that there is no such header file which I could include
or add the new vendor IDs.
