Interesting. I have that driver built in the kernel. What's the process for emerging the driver for the kernel to use it?

hmmmm.. looks like it needs to be loaded as a module.

Need to blacklist or disable completely the kernel module/driver and compile portages driver module. It needs recompiling after every kernel update.

(I think most hardware works properly with kernel driver, Realtek version is rarely needed/better.)
