Default Bug#499763: linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64: r8169 (network) not working on 2.6.26

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.26-5
Severity: normal

Hi,

I tried upgrading my lenny box from 2.6.25 to 2.6.26 and it doesn't work
really well, especially from the network pov.

The box uses the r8169 module:

01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E PCI
Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02)

When booting the 2.6.26, I have:

[ 2.270265] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.2LK-NAPI loaded
[ 2.270387] ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16

[ 41.365702] ---[ end trace 6058d4309049ae83 ]---

Then, during all the session, I get:

[ 96.170038] NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
[ 96.985210] r8169: eth0: link up
[ 126.813323] NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
[ 127.666630] r8169: eth0: link up

and eth0 never transmit anything.

Rebooting under 2.6.25 works fine. I'm using the latest 2.6.26 in Lenny (2.6.26-5).

As it's a production server I can't easily test and do bisect test on this.

Cheers,
