For the record then:

It is suspected that workarounds in the _up() routine of e1000 can cause the 
receive unit to be enabled before we're all done initializing the adapter data. 
An interrupt arriving before we're all done setting up obviously causes 
problems. To fix, we postpone enabling interrupts completely until the software 
intialization is finished.
