Doesn't help for this problem.

However this fixes a second issue for me:
In 3.7.1 at startup the link came up after 15 sec.:
grep r8169 dmesg.3.7.1
[ 1.956842] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
[ 1.957059] r8169 0000:02:00.0: irq 42 for MSI/MSI-X
[ 1.957161] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: RTL8168evl/8111evl at..
[ 1.957163] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: jumbo features [frames..
[ 13.575452] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link down
[ 13.575475] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link down
[ 15.181317] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link up

In 3.8rc the time increased to 24 seconds:
grep r8169 dmesg.3.8.0
[ 1.852546] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
[ 1.852765] r8169 0000:02:00.0: irq 42 for MSI/MSI-X
[ 1.852872] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: RTL8168evl/8111evl at...
[ 1.852874] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: jumbo features [frames...
[ 14.150212] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link down
[ 14.150229] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link down
[ 24.140263] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link up

But with this revert I get the old performance:
dmesg | grep r8169
[ 1.816613] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
[ 1.816832] r8169 0000:02:00.0: irq 42 for MSI/MSI-X
[ 1.816947] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: RTL8168evl/8111evl at...
[ 1.816948] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: jumbo features [frames...
[ 13.986401] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link down
[ 13.986422] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link down
[ 15.623631] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: link up

Thus I recommend to revert this too.

That's it! This fixes the problem for me!


Thanks, Jörg
