Sorry but this patch looks incorrect to me. Since e1000_netpoll() can be
called with interrupts disabled e1000_intr() must not enable interrupts
unconditionally. Shouldn't the save / restore variants be used in
e1000_intr() instead of spin_lock_irq() and spin_unlock_irq() ? See also
the invocation of call_console_drivers() in console_unlock().

Bart.
