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:
http://www.fr.zoreil.com/people/francois/misc/20070522-2.6.22-rc2-r8169.patch

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

Btw, I have just updated everything for 2.6.22-rc3, you should try any of
http://www.fr.zoreil.com/linux/kernel/2.6.x/2.6.22-rc3
http://www.fr.zoreil.com/people/francois/misc/20070527-2.6.22-rc3-r8169.patch

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.
