Module r8169 gets nothing in the PCI BAR after system resumes which
makes MSI-X fail on some ASUS laptops equipped with RTL8106e chip.
https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-pci/msg75598.html

Actually, I am waiting for the patch "PCI: Reprogram bridge prefetch
registers on resume" being merged.
https://marc.info/?l=linux-pm&m=153680987814299&w=2

It resolves the drivers which get nothing in PCI BAR after system resumes.

After that, I can remove the falling back code of RTL8106e.

Heiner, any comment?
