Realtek r8169 1gbit/1000mbit NIC/Ethernet Goes Down/Halts on Large File Transfer/Heavy Network Usage

This is obviously a bug in the r8169 kernel module and it seems to affect a lot of people.  I upgraded to the latest kernel and hope this won't happen anymore, as it is a very serious error.  This is especially serious for those who are running servers with this chipset, who can afford for the NIC to randomly go off-line for no apparent reason?
