source on pkgbuild seems to be wrong: source=(https://az695102.vo.msecnd.net/rtdrivers/cn/nic/0011-r8168-8.046.00.tar.bz2

should be source=(https://az695102.vo.msecnd.net/rtdrivers/cn/nic/0012-r8168-8.046.00.tar.bz2

@DgDev91: Patch updated, thanks!

Patch updated. it doesn't really change anything, it's a simple code cleanup.

My patch was a bit "dirty", as i said in the last post, now a kind developer (angelsl on github) showed me the proper way to fix it.

Here's the updated patch: https://pastebin.com/Q6uQmMhE

@DGdev91: adapted, used your patch! Thans a lot!

This works no more on Linux 4.15, because the code calls the setup_timer function, wich was dropped not too much time ago https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/513ae785c63c30741e46f43960213d4ae5382ec0#diff-ba8897e9349509c7ca4d37b0704bee9c

I've tried to adapt it for the new kernel, you can find my version here. https://github.com/DGdev91/r8168/commit/bc248cd63115388d76d15e1c5ac8ac2f74a2dc25 There's probably a cleaner way to achieve this, but at least it works.

I've also created a pull request on mtorromeo's repo, wich is in the pkgbuild. (it's there just in case someone is seeking for a way to run this on kernel 4.15+, i know he doesn't accept patches, it's supposed to be just a mirror)

Here the patch https://pastebin.com/sCcpUqUu

It breaks for linux-lts 4.4.19-1, which is caused by linux-4.5.patch.

Here is a patch that works:
