SubjectRe: R8169: Network lockups in 4.18.{8,9,10} (and 4.19 dev)
From
Date
Sorry, I forgot that editing r8169.c and rebuilding would result in rc7+, so I tested the wrong kernel/module to get the
results I provided below. That, however, may make the results more interesting because they happened with a virgin rc7
kernel/module.

I'll test your proposals properly later.
