Thanks for the report. A jumbo fix for one chip version may have
revealed an issue with another chip version. Could you please try

I checked the vendor driver r8168 and there's no special sequence
to configure jumbo mode.

What would be interesting:
Do you set the (jumbo) MTU before bringing the device up?
