r8169 NICs on some platforms have abysmal speed when ASPM is enabled.
Same issue can be observed with older vendor drivers.

The issue is however solved by the latest vendor driver. There's a new
mechanism, which disables r8169's internal ASPM when the NIC has
substantial network traffic, and vice versa.

So implement the same mechanism here to resolve the issue.
