Hi,
Just found a r8168 driver which seems to be authrized by realtek for cross
comparison. I tried applying the patch to latest 4.15 kernel and the driver done
it's initialization in faily short time. The patch file is here
https://gist.github.com/mschiu77/fcf406e64a1a437f46cf2be643f1057d.

In mainline r8169.c, the IBISR0 register need to be polled in the
rtl8168ep_stop_cmac().
In the patch file, there's also the same IBISR0 polling code in
Dash2DisableTx(),
but it's been bypassed since the chipset maches HW_DASH_SUPPORT_TYPE_2.
Per the rtl_chip_info[] in r8168_n.c, CFG_METHOD_23/27/28 are
HW_DASH_SUPPORT_TYPE_2,
and they happens to be the only 3 named RTL8168EP/8111EP in the rtl_chip_info[].

To find the same matches in r8169.c, RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_49/50/51
seems share the
same config. Can anyone clarify if the rtl_ocp_tx_cond() really
necessary for 8168EP/8111EP?
Or we can just ignore the condition check for RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_49/50/51?

Chris
