Adding pcie_aspm=off the kernel command line or changing that check to ">= RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_60" for testing purposes and recompiling the kernel fixes my problems.

Well, we already removed changes like the one causing this if things
like ASPM cause regressions only for some users because their HW is
flawky. But I'd prefer to avoid that myself.

Bernhard, did this or the suggestions from Hans help to solve the
problem for you?

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)

P.S.: As the Linux kernel's regression tracker I deal with a lot of
reports and sometimes miss something important when writing mails like
this. If that's the case here, don't hesitate to tell me in a public
reply, it's in everyone's interest to set the public record straight.
