Hi all,

Main part of following patch is obtained from FreeBSD:
- correct eeprom accessing
- support more 8169 based chips
FreeBSD's re(4) turns off TX moderation by default, but I have seen
netperf's UDP/TCP_STREAM noticable performance degradation in this
way.  So a new per interface sysctl is added to turn on/off TX
moderation on fly:
It is _on_ by default.
Please test/review it (it is against HEAD)
If no objection comes, I will commit it one week later.
Best Regards,
