Problem comes from commit 54405cde762408b00a445466a40da4f7f33a8479
(r8169: support control of advertising.)

Reverting it brings back NIC for me

Odd. It worked for me. Are you testing on a gigabit switch? Could you send
me dmesg? Does it work if you use ethtool to advertise a lower speed?


I found the bug, I am sending a patch in two minutes.

I do not understand. I reverted the commit you mentioned and am building now. Will it suffice?
