System only can reach PC3, and it affects power consumption alot.

Kaiheng implemented a dynamic ASPM for r8169, it not only fixes the PC
state issue, but also fixes network speed issue.

Verified on 2 different systems which has PC state issue and has network
speed issue, these patches fix both issues.

[Where problems could occur]
It toggles ASPM on and off depends on the network traffic during runtime,
I don't think it'll lead to any regressions. Some potential issues have
been addressed during the patch submitting. It's v6 now and accepted by

Kai-Heng Feng (3):
  PCI/ASPM: Introduce a new helper to report ASPM capability
  r8169: Enable chip-specific ASPM regardless of PCIe ASPM status
  r8169: Implement dynamic ASPM mechanism
