Bug Description

[Impact]
New Realtek ethernet chips don't work.

[Fix]
Add new IDs to r8169.ko.

[Test]
The r8169 is loaded for the Realtek ethernet chip.
It works, and I haven't seen any issues so far.

[Regression Potential]
Low. New IDs to existing driver, no functional change.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-cosmic' to 'verification-done-cosmic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-cosmic' to 'verification-failed-cosmic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
