@Gabriel:
Thanks for the hint, I wasn't fully aware of this thread.
@Maciej:
Thanks for the analysis.

It seems that all chip versions from 34 (= RTL8168E-VL) with the
exception of version 39 (= RTL8106E, first sub-version) need
bit TXCFG_AUTO_FIFO.

And indeed, due to reordering of calls this bit is overwritten.
Following patch moves setting the bit from the chip-specific
hw_start function to rtl_set_tx_config_registers().

Whoever is hit by the issue and has the option to build a kernel,
could you please test whether the patch fixes the issue for you?

Thanks, Heiner
