Subject: [PATCH 2.6.34] r8169: enable 64-bit DMA by default for PCI Express
 devices (v2)

Currently use of 64-bit DMA is disabled in r8169 unless the user passes the
use_dac module option. This is reasonable for conventional PCI devices where
broken chipsets may not handle dual-address-cycle transfers properly for
32-bit slots and so this may not be safe. However, PCI Express should not have
this problem and not using 64-bit DMA results in DMA transfers needlessly using
the IOMMU or SWIOTLB. Set the use_dac module parameter to a new default value of
-1 which results in 64-bit DMA being enabled by default for PCI Express devices
only.
