No.  Hardware support in one driver should never be affected by config
options in another drivers.

Also I really think there shouldn't be one single driver for all the
hardware as outlined by intel people in this thread.  I'd say add a new
e1000e driver for all the pci-e hardware and have a temporary config
option to disable those device already supported by the existing e1000
driver.
