That's pretty silly.  The chips have two different modes, and the
legacy mode rtk uses has awful performance -- as you have just found.

A broken implementation that claims it's an 8169-like chip, on the
part of QEMU or Xen, isn't a reason to cripple or discard a driver that
works with the real hardware.
