    r8169: Enable RX_MULTI_EN for RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_40 · 7a9810e7
    Michel Dänzer authored
    The ethernet port on my ASUS A88X Pro mainboard stopped working
    several times a day, with messages like these in dmesg:
    
    AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT device=05:00.0 domain=0x001e address=0x0000000000003000 flags=0x0050]
    
    Searching the web for these messages led me to similar reports about
    different hardware supported by r8169, and eventually to commits
    3ced8c95 ('r8169: enforce RX_MULTI_EN
    for the 8168f.') and eb2dc35d
    
     ('r8169:
    RxConfig hack for the 8168evl'). So I tried this change, and it fixes
    the problem for me.
