Subject: [PATCH 4.18 04/35] r8169: dont use MSI-X on RTL8168g

4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Heiner Kallweit <hkallweit1@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit 7c53a722459c1d6ffb0f5b2058c06ca8980b8600 ]

There have been two reports that network doesn't come back on resume
from suspend when using MSI-X. Both cases affect the same chip version
(RTL8168g - version 40), on different systems. Falling back to MSI
fixes the issue.
Even though we don't really have a proof yet that the network chip
version is to blame, let's disable MSI-X for this version.
