A back port of the e1000 Intel card to kernel 2.2

The Intel e1000 giga network card has an official Linux driver which is maintained at the project site on SourceForge.

Somewhen during the drivers life support for the 2.2 version of the Linux kernel was dropped. However, some people still wish to use newer version of the driver, which support newer chip sets and revision of the card, with the 2.2 kernel. This patch is for these people.

Please note that this is a non supported and non official patch to the driver. It works for us (TM) is all we’re willing to commit to about it so use it on your own risk and please don’t bother the e1000 driver guys about bugs with this patch 🙂
