I just tried on my machine changing the blacklist r8169 to blacklist r8168 and rebooted my system.
The strange thing is, both of these drivers seem to work with my chipset.
On a gigabit connection it’s hard to guage the difference between these drivers.
However, I seem to be getting a better, more consistent throughput with the r8169 kernel module.
Not to mention, all of those acpi, etc. etc. msgs on boot are now gone.
