The patch is not included in the latest kernel source.

Actually, you are not supposed to use the patch-kit this way. If you do
a 'tar jxvf r8169-20070522.tar.bz2', you should notice that the archive
file is extracted into a nice directory which contains a serie of patches.
You should follow the numbering of the patches and apply them to a clean
2.6.22-rc2 tree (i.e. apply 0001-foo, 0002-bar, 0003-frob, usw).

As an option you can retrieve the url below which contains all the patches
above in a single patch-file:

The patch-kit allows to peel the onion more easily when somthing goes

If you use 'make oldconfig' to update your config, you will be prompted
for 'EEPROM 93CX6 support' as the relevant bits have been extracted from
the wireless-dev git tree to access the EEPROM connected to the 816x.
Don't disable it.
