      r8169: use 50% less ram for RX ring · 6f0333b8

      Using standard skb allocations in r8169 leads to order-3 allocations (if
      PAGE_SIZE=4096), because NIC needs 16383 bytes, and skb overhead makes
      this bigger than 16384 -> 32768 bytes per "skb"
      
      Using kmalloc() permits to reduce memory requirements of one r8169 nic
      by 4Mbytes. (256 frames * 16Kbytes). This is fine since a hardware bug
      requires us to copy incoming frames, so we build real skb when doing
      this copy.
