After a false start with the 82571 flavor I have checked kernel driver 
code and
it turned out that pid 1502 is the new variant of the pch controller 
(found in
e1000e_ich8lan.c in the ipxe driver) used in new intel family 6 mobile 
I have more or less dumbly copied the info section from kernel code.
At first sight it seems to work (the driver initialized the controller 
and I was able
to get an ip address via dhcp) but I need to do further testing (e.g. 
boot over iscsi).
