As far as the Ethernet driver is concerned this really isn't news. The EtherK documentation has been included on Iyonix hard discs for months now, though earlier purchasers may not have had it (presumably the documentation update remedies this). Reading this file would have revealed the above information rather more easily than 'spotting similarities' - your keen reader must have an awful lot of spare time on his hands! In any case, this shouldn't be terribly surprising, as writing any sort of device driver without using source code provided free by the chip vendor would be masochistic to say the least (and maybe impossible, depending on the quality/availability of datasheets).
