I've committed this change into the kernel and the latest sid kernel has
it. From build logs:
-rw-r--r-- root/root 118816 2012-07-24 14:15 ./lib/modules/3.2.0-3-loongson-2f/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/r8169.ko
-rw-r--r-- root/root 61056 2012-07-24 14:15 ./lib/modules/3.2.0-3-loongson-2f/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/8139too.ko
Can you test again to see if more changes are needed ?
