At first please provide a full dmesg log and output of lspci -vv.
Do you have the firmware for the NIC loaded? Please provide "ethtool -i <if>"
output.

Does the issue affect link-down and/or link-up detection?
Do you have runtime pm enabled? Then, after 10s of link-down NIC goes to
D3hot and link-up detection triggers a PME.

Which are the affected chip versions? Did you check with Realtek?
Your patch switches to polling for all Fast Ethernet versions,
and that's not what we want.

My suspicion would be that something is system-dependent. Else I think
we would have seen such a report before.

This doesn't seem to be used.

flags isn't used and triggers a compiler warning. Did you even
compile-test your patch?

All this isn't needed. If you want to switch to link status polling,
why don't you simply let phylib do it? PHY_MAC_INTERRUPT -> PHY_POLL

Your timer-based code most likely would have problems if runtime pm
is enabled. Then you try to read the link status whilst NIC is in
D3hot.
