Sorry.

David, please consider reverting

1e918876853aa85435e0f17fd8b4a92dcfff53d6
(r8169: add support for Byte Queue Limits)

	and

0bec3b700d106a8b0a34227b2976d1a582f1aab7
(r8169: add support for xmit_more)

I cannot reproduce any hangs (tried for 2days with 40 parallel
netperfs using both 100mbit and 1gbit receiver).

And I don't see anything wrong with the change either.
Seems like some revisions of the HW are just dodgy?

I hate giving up, but I have no means to diagnose this any further.
Even reporter says it doesn't affect all of his r8169 nics.

So I think the change is correct per se, but might be revealing some
HW/firmware bug.
