Mantra: mainline first, stable later.

In the next future, most of this patchset will hopefully go into
2.6.23-rc1. Some people will then complain that 2.6.23-rc1 breaks
their 816x. After that the patchkit will be amended and the r8169
regressions in 2.6.23-rcX fixed.

Then it will be time to feed some r8169 bits in 2.6.2x.y

It may help and/or accelerate things if you can narrow the fix(es) in
the current r8169 serie.
