It would probably be better to duplicate the
CYGPKG_DEVS_ETH_I386_PC_I21143, since it already contains all the
config info you need. Then just change the file and CDL option names
as appropriate.

You need to add a new target, say pc_i21143, and substitute the
necessary packages. Take a look at what has been done for the pc_giga
and pc_rltk8139 targets.
