Subject[RFC] r8169: Module parameter for opt-in of ASPM
Hello,

this patch adds a module parameter in order to activate ASPM.
Basically it reapplies d64ec841517a25f6d468bde9f67e5b4cffdc67c7, which
was reverted as some people reported delayed link status detection and
increased boot times: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/2/6/372.

The differences to this patch are:
1) Turned off by default but with module parameter for activation
2) Flags for aspm and clock request are set after ephy_init
3) Minor changes because of merging

Motivation for changes compared to previous patch:
1) Probably the patch wouldn't be merged when it is active by
default

2) There are comments, that state: "disable aspm and clock
request before access ephy", thus I tried to respect that and
activate it afterwards.
Perhaps that was even the cause for the problems that let to
reverting the old patch, but unfortunately couldn't reproduce
these bugs and therefore wasn't able to check if it's solved with
my version.

Remarks:
1) This patch drops power usage from 13W to 8W and therefore
leads to a vastly increased battery life and reduced heat
dissipation on my notebook. Some people reported similar issues
on different hardware (for example):
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=72211
http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg298949.html
Especially on newer systems (Haswell) the power savings seem to
be huge, as the network chip prevents the CPU from entering
deeper package sleep states (no PC6/PC7 are reached, only PC3).

2) To benefit from the power savings a reboot is not sufficient.
At least on my system it has to be powered off completely (cold
boot). There seem to be no kernel functions to enable a link
state, there is just pci_disable_link_state to disable low power
states, thus this problem can't be solved by now.

3) This patch was tested only on a single system and supports
only the same cards than the old patch, as I couldn't find any
documents to read about the registers and flags of newer cards.
If anybody could send me a link, or tell me that it's save to
set the same flags on newer cards this patch could probably also
cover those cards.

Should I add support for newer cards, too?
Is there any chance to enable ASPM by default again?
Which improvements do I need to do in order to get this patch to the
kernel again?

I would appreciate any kind of feedback.
