Maybe for e1000 we should just skip the driver entirely. Odds are you
aren't going to have any e1000 parts running on ARM anyway since most
of them are legacy PCI or PCI-X parts that were made over 10 years
ago. Most of your efforts would probably be best spent on igb, igbvf,
ixgbe, ixgbevf, i40e, i40evf, and fm10k.
