libphy fails to detect RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express lan card
Since approx a month ago (not sure of exact date), linux-lts fails to detect my pcie lan card, despite r8169 being loaded:
r8169 0000:05:00.0: realtek.ko not loaded, maybe it needs to be added to initramfs?
I believe this patch is needed (or related) to fix the issue: https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/2/21/812
I do not have a workaround
lsmod | egrep "r8" r8169 94208 0 libphy 94208 1 r8169
