Subject: [PATCH v2 net 0/2] r8169: revert two commits due to a regression

Sander reported a regression (kernel panic, see[1]), therefore let's
revert these commits. Removal of the barriers doesn't seem to
contribute to the issue, the patch just overlaps with the problematic
one and only reverting both patches was tested.

v2:
- improve commit message

Heiner Kallweit (2):
  Revert "r8169: remove unneeded mmiowb barriers"
  Revert "r8169: make use of xmit_more and __netdev_sent_queue"
