SubjectRe: [3.8-rc] regression: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0 (r8169): transmit queue 0 timed out

Can you check if things improve with v3.8-rc2 after removing :

1. 9ecb9aabaf634677c77af467f4e3028b09d7bcda
r8169: workaround for missing extended GigaMAC registers
2. d64ec841517a25f6d468bde9f67e5b4cffdc67c7
r8169: enable internal ASPM and clock request settings
3. e0c075577965d1c01b30038d38bf637b027a1df3
r8169: enable ALDPS for power saving

(you can directly try v3.7 r8169.c with v3.8-rc2 if it worked for you
so far)

If the regression is still there, please apply the patch below to both
v3.8-rc2 unpatched and a known working version then send me their dmesg
after you 'ip link set dev eth0 up'.
