Subject: [PATCH 5.0 038/117] r8169: disable default rx interrupt coalescing on RTL8168

[ Upstream commit 288ac524cf70a8e7ed851a61ed2a9744039dae8d ]

It was reported that re-introducing ASPM, in combination with RX
interrupt coalescing, results in significantly increased packet
latency, see [0]. Disabling ASPM or RX interrupt coalescing fixes
the issue. Therefore change the driver's default to disable RX
interrupt coalescing. Users still have the option to enable RX
coalescing via ethtool.
