[bug expected in common revisions of r8169 driver ?]

Serie available at:
http://www.fr.zoreil.com/linux/kernel/2.6.x/2.6.1-bk1-b

Tarball:
http://www.fr.zoreil.com/linux/kernel/2.6.x/2.6.1-bk1-b/r8169-blob.tar.bz2

I will welcome feedback related to the behavior of the driver once the
following serie is applied on top of 2.6.1-bk1 (may apply to 2.6.1 as well):
r8169-dma-api-tx.patch
r8169-dma-api-rx-buffers.patch
r8169-dma-api-rx-buffers-ahum.patch
r8169-dma-api-rx-buffers-argl.patch
r8169-rx-fill-typo.patch
r8169-start-xmit-fixes.patch
r8169-dma-api-tx-buffers.patch
r8169-tx-index-overflow.patch

No intermediate tests needed.
