[Bug 160413] Re: Wake on LAN (WOL) not working with r8169 driver

Few days ago I had tested the r8168-8.011.00 module from Realtek without
success. Following the latest comments, I tried the very last release
(r8168-8.012.00) of the kernel module and ... it simply worked (I could
even remove NETDOWN=no in /etc/init.de/halt).

In order to make it permanent don't forget to blacklist r8169 in
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and to rebuild the initrd :

sudo depmod -a
sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-$(uname -r) $(uname -r)
