The Realtek Ethernet[10ec:8136] works after S3 with kernel 4.15.0-33.36,
and fails with kernel There is no interrupt while
plug/unplug Ethernet cable after S3, so it looks like an regression after

Check changelog and found there are 2 commits introduced from
4.15.0-35.38 might be suspicious
  * r8169 no internet after suspending (LP: #1779817)
    - r8169: don't use MSI-X on RTL8168g
    - r8169: don't use MSI-X on RTL8106e
And check the upstream log and found the 2 MSI-X commits had been all
reverted, since below commit claims it fixes the MSI-X interrupt issue
which is already in Bionic kernel.
   083874549fdf PCI: Reprogram bridge prefetch registers on resume
So, I reverted the 2 MSI-X commits and found the Ethernet works again
after S3.

[Regression Potential]
Low, the 2 disable MSI-X commits are workarounds, and now we have a proper
way to fix the issue, so it should be fine to revert them.
