    It is.

    I then tried 0002-r8169-more-magic.txt, mainly to see that it doesn't cause
    any problems. Unfortunately, it did... however, a little reading showed that
    you've stopped enabling transmit and receive for all but four of the chip
    types supported by the driver.

    An incremental fix is attached.

    r8169: fix more magic so that 8101e etc. work again

    r8169-more-magic killed transmit & receive on my laptop's RTL8101e. Turns out
    to be that the enabling of these functions had been unitnentionally removed.

    (This is one of two possible fixes, the other being the removal of the if()
    guarding the other tx/rx-enable call. Both work here.)
