Now we can finally see some difference...
Besides missing RX128_INT_EN (bit 15 or 0x8000) and RX_DMA_BURST
(bits 8-10 or 0x700) - that rtl_init_rxcfg() would normally set so this
is kind of expected - one can see that the working configuration
post-resume has bit 14 (or 0x4000) set, too.

This bit is described in the driver as RX_MULTI_EN ("8111c only") and is
set by rtl_init_rxcfg() for example for RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_35.

RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_35 is described in the driver as being in the same
family as your RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_38, so can you please try the following
--- r8169.c
+++ r8169.c
@@ -4271,6 +4271,7 @@ static void rtl_init_rxcfg(struct rtl816
+ case RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_38:
RTL_W32(tp, RxConfig, RX128_INT_EN | RX_MULTI_EN | RX_DMA_BURST);
This will add RX_MULTI_EN also for your chip model (you need to add back
the call to rtl_init_rxcfg() to rtl_hw_start(), naturally).

If this does not help then I would try another values in the above write:
1) RTL_W32(tp, RxConfig, 0x00024000);
2) RTL_W32(tp, RxConfig, 0x00004000);
3) RTL_W32(tp, RxConfig, RX_DMA_BURST);
4) RTL_W32(tp, RxConfig, RX128_INT_EN);
