TP-Link UE300 not working in 5.2-RELEASE
User reported on IRC that a TP-Link UE300 USB 3.0 does not work in DragonFly 5.2-RELEASE.
USB device dump:

Tried to load several modules (as specified here: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-usb-tethering.html) but no ue device is created.
No dmesg output after loading:

FreeBSD creates interface 'ue0' and if_ure shows up in kldstat.

I have put up an IMG with an untested port of ure(4) here -> https://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~swildner/dfly_5.3_ure.img.xz
It would be nice if the person who reported this on the IRC channel could try it out. Of course I'd be happy to hear from anyone else who has one of the supported devices (Realtek RTL8152/RTL8153), too.
I can provide an ISO or a patch too, if that is needed.
