Thanks for the Cc Rafael.

The aforementioned patch matches three commits - mostly bugfixes - which
went in between 2.6.27 and 2.6.28:

commit ccdffb9a88b2907b159538d7bfd6256621db4f84

r8169: get ethtool settings through the generic mii helper

commit 2857ffb7b8913ef713533ac5783abd70a20529e4

r8169: additional 8101 and 8102 support

commit 523a609496dbc3897e530db2a2f27650d125ea00

r8169: fix RxMissed register access

Frank, can you:
1. try the r8169.c file from the 2.6.28 tree with Ubuntu's kernel
2. grep for the XID line printed by the r8169 driver in the lernel's dmesg

If 1. does not work , you can peel the onion with the patchkit available
at : apply them in
increasing order to your working Ubuntu driver until is stops waking
up correctly (skip patches #0001, #0006 and #0007 as they match the
commits above) or try a binary search.

As a side note for those who remember the early 2.6.27-rc "null mac
address with the r8169 driver", the patchkit does not include the
patches which were included between 2.6.27 and 2.6.28 then later
