Subjectr8169 mac address change (was Re: [0/3] 2.6.19-rc2: known regressions)
Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org> :
[regression related to r8169 MAC address change]
> Francois ? Jeff ?

Go revert it.

Despite what I claimed, I can not find a third-party confirmation by email
that it works elsewhere.

It would probably be enough to remove the call to __rtl8169_set_mac_addr()
in rtl8169_hw_start() though.

In place of the test suggested in bugzilla, I'd rather see Guennadi test
the thing below (acked on netdev by the initial victim if someone wonders
why it has not changed the status of bugzilla so far):

Subject: [PATCH] r8169: perform a PHY reset before any other operation at boot time

Realtek's 8139/810x (0x8136) PCI-E comes with a touchy PHY.
A big heavy reset seems to calm it down.

Fix for http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7378.
