Lenovo USB Ethernet adapter and Debian

I bought Lenovo USB Ethernet adapter for my home PC that I set up as a router. The problem is Debian stable does not contain driver for this device (USB ID 17ef:7203), I needed to compile my own.
I found some help on the following pages:
Linux asix_devices.c
Case of the Broken Linux Driver (Lenovo USB 2.0 Ethernet 10/100 dongle)
I needed to change &ax88772b_info in the code snippet.
