You patch -R in the following order until you get the behavior of vanilla
kernel (or return to vanilla and patch in reverse order but you will notice
a small reject for rx_copybreak due to an inserted GPL_MODULE in -netdrvr-exp).
- r8169-mac-phy-version.patch
- r8169-rx_copybreak.patch (11/22/2003 in euroland)
- r8169-dma-api-tx-buffers.patch
- r8169-start-xmit-fixes.patch
- r8169-dma-api-data-buffers.patch
- r8169-dma-api-tx.patch 

1 - If you don't get the usual behavior at this point, something is _wrong_.
2 - You will have a one line offset, don't worry.

Thank you.
