If the problem is caused by missing TXCFG_AUTO_FIFO bit in TxConfig,
as the register difference would suggest, then you can try applying
the following patch (hack) on top of 4.18.8 that is already patched
with commit f74dd480cf4e:
--- a/drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/r8169.c
+++ b/drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/r8169.c
@@ -5043,7 +5043,8 @@
/* Set DMA burst size and Interframe Gap Time */
RTL_W32(tp, TxConfig, (TX_DMA_BURST << TxDMAShift) |
- (InterFrameGap << TxInterFrameGapShift));
+ (InterFrameGap << TxInterFrameGapShift)

static void rtl_set_rx_max_size(struct rtl8169_private *tp)
This hack will probably only work properly on RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_40 or
later NICs.

Before running any tests please verify with "ethtool -d enp3s0" that
TxConfig register now contains 0x4f000f80, as it did in the old,
working driver version.

If this does not help then a bisection will most likely be needed.
