Marvell 88e6161 switch stop working when the kernel upgrade to 4.9.x

Saw a message for this from 2015-11. My first guess it that you should try a more recent kernel. 4.9.60 is most current and you are trying 4.9.36.

What is this device QiZhiTong 501M V2? Maybe the makers of it can help?

I am curious about this Marvel chip set since it is in the Steam Link.
