Unfortunately this patch has been created backwards:
diff -u file.new file.old
when it should be created from
diff -u ./drivers/net/r8169.c.old \
./drivers/net/r8169.c
Additionally, your patch was word-wrapped by your email program, which
prevents software from importing the patch into a kernel source tree.

Let's keep the existing style of code. The other MAC registers are
listed in the "0xnn" hexidecimal style.

Is there a better name for this register? :)

While we understand that RealTek may need to support multiple kernel
versions, drivers in the official kernel.org kernel typically do not
contain compatibility code for older kernel versions.

Can you help us understand this code change? This change appears to
disable multicast on these MAC versions.
