Subject[PATCH] r8169: only disable ASPM L1.1 support, instead of disabling them all
The issues which have been seen by enabling ASPM support are from the
BIOS that enables the ASPM L1.1 support on the device. It leads to some
strange behaviors when the device enter L1.1 state.
So, we don't have to disable ASPM support entriely, just disable L1.1
state, that fixes the issues and also has good power management.
