Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 net-next] r8169: work around an irq coalescing
 related tx timeout

> In [0] a user reported reproducible tx timeouts on RTL8168f except
> PktCntrDisable is set and irq coalescing is enabled.
> Realtek told me that they are not aware of any related hw issue on
> this chip version, therefore root cause is still unknown. It's not
> clear whether the issue affects one or more chip versions in general,
> or whether issue is specific to reporter's system.
> Due to this level of uncertainty, and due to the fact that I'm aware
> of this one report only, let's apply the workaround on net-next only.
> After this change setting irq coalescing via ethtool can reliably
> avoid the issue on the affected system.
