Subject: Re: r8168 is needed to enter P-state: Package State 6 (pc6)onHaswell
 hardware: does the patch below against current kernel make a difference?

Sorry for the delay. As newbie I first needed to learn about depmod to 
restore loading the r8169 module instead of r8168.

Now, I am struggling with applying the patch. Even with fuzz 99 applying 
this patch fails for hunk #2:

~/linux-3.13.0# patch -Np1 -F99 -r - --dry-run <<'END'
 > index 0921302..b4a3881 100644
...
 >  rtl_eri_write(tp, 0xb8, ERIAR_MASK_0011, 0x0000, ERIAR_EXGMAC);
 > END
checking file drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/r8169.c
Hunk #1 succeeded at 468 with fuzz 3.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 5280.
1 out of 2 hunks FAILED

Francois, could you help me apply your patch?
