Hi Alexander,
Great thanks for your testing!
I have investigated the first issue but still have no idea about it.
According to source code, everything should be OK.
The r8169 driver has invoked INIT_WORK(&tp->, rtl_task) to
initialize the work item, so it shouldn't trigger the warning.
Have you found this issue in other test cases?
