I have a couple of 8139 boards with this subsystem ID. One of them is identified by Linux's 8139too driver as a 'RTL-8100B/8139D' and bears a 'Cameo Communications, Inc.' MAC address, and the other has a Realtek MAC. This entry therefore seems utterly useless.

I agree, subsystem ID's that are equal to the device ID and carry no extra information need not be registered (lspci uses the device table as a fallback anyway).

Lspci doesn't do that (any more) and lists those IDs as "Subsystem: $VENDOR Device", not sure about other implementations like Busybox. If I see this, I normally conclude that the ID hasn't been "researched" yet.

I'd prefer to have anything that exists in reality also in the database, perhaps making clear that it's a generic ID rather than just duplicating the main entry, so the user would know immediately that this is nothing special, even if only names (and not also the numbers) are displayed. Note that older lspci versions display numbers or names, but never both at the same time, so you must invoke it at least twice to see that the main and subsystem IDs are actually the same.
