I wrote a little patch for you. You can apply it to the current
dpdk-master branch and test it.
My Thinkpad T430 has such a NIC and shows some rx packets and the link
status change with the patch,
when using testpmd. Maybe 82579LM was not supported for a reason, so
simply try out if it works for your purpose :)
