Write performance was quite high, around 650-700 megabit no doubt due
to caching behavior on the server, and it was similar in both cases.
I believe the machine with the r8169 was CPU bound at this point or it
probably would have been even higher.

Sorry for the slow response, your reply ended up buried in a deluge of
email and I just dug it out.  I'll give these other patches a spin in
the next couple days when I get a chance and see if things improve.
