Default Bug#463705: please add r8169 kernel module to mips/r5k-ip32 build

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-r5k-ip32
Versione: 2.6.24-2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Hi, I am using a network card managed by "RealTek RTL-8169 Gigabit
Ethernet driver" on an SGI O2 machine since many months without any
problem.

Would you please add this module to the package? A very simple patch is:

----------------------------------------------------------
