Subject[NET][r8169 regression] Linux "v2.6.27-2721-gfd04808" panics on boot - reverting commit 7bf6bf4803df1adc927f585168d2135fb019c698 fixes it
Date
Hello! 

The latest stable snapshot of Linus' tree panics during boot for me.
"git describe" says "v2.6.27-2721-gfd04808".
I was only able to take a picture of the panic with my phone camera,
see [1] and [2] (sorry for the awful quality).
After looking around, I marked a few commits, and I think I got lucky -
reverted the first one, and my machine booted up normally.
The commit I reverted is :

NOTE: the above output of "lspci -vvxx" is taken on a kernel
with the commit in question reverted, if it matters at all.

If you need more info, want me to file a bug report or there is a
patch for me to try - I will be glad to help.

Thanks,
