Subject: [PATCH net] r8169: fix data corruption issue on RTL8402

Petr reported that after resume from suspend RTL8402 partially
truncates incoming packets, and re-initializing register RxConfig
before the actual chip re-initialization sequence is needed to avoid
the issue.

Hard to provide a Fixes tag because it seems the issue has been
always there. Due to frequent changes in function rtl8169_resume()
we would need a number of different fixes for the stable kernel
versions. That the issue was reported only now indicates that chip
version RTL8402 is rare. Therefore treat this change mainly as an
improvement. This fix version applies from 5.9 after just submitted
fix "r8169: fix handling ether_clk".
