The hotplug scripts are in /etc/hotplug, and the pci-related scripts are
normally in /etc/hotplug/pci.  You could try a recursive grep for 8139
in the /etc/hotplug directory.

As a last resort, if you can't find where it's getting loaded, you could
blacklist the 8139cp driver by adding it to /etc/hotplug/blacklist.
Then you could load the 8139too driver by other means.
