Thanks for reporting. As you refer to [0], do you use jumbo packets?

Best of course would be a bisect between 5.3 and 5.4. Can you do this?
I have no test hardware with this chip version (RTL8411B).

You could also try to revert a7a92cf81589 ("r8169: sync PCIe PHY init with vendor driver 8.047.01")
and check whether this fixes your issue.
In addition you could test latest 5.5-rc, or linux-next.
