According to the changelog, there has indeed been no other changes
between those versions.
I'm *sure* I read something about an 8139 fix on -devel relating to
stable, there was an argument about whether it was appropriate or not.
This struck me as too much of a coincidence. However, I can't find
the thread I was thinking of, so perhaps it was this earlier change:
linux-2.6 (2.6.32-36) stable; urgency=low
r8169: Backport changes up to Linux 3.0.2 (Closes: #627704)

- Add support for RTL8105E, RTL8168E and another variant of RTL8168DP
