You can send a PR to the r8169 maintainer including:
- a test scenario
- some figures
- the .config
- dmesg from boot
- lspci -vx output
- lsmod output
- ifconfig output
- the content of /proc/interrupts

(a tarball or an url are both fine with me)

If you do so, please keep some public mailing list in the Cc: (beowulf
or netdev at vger.kernel.org for instance).
