Both e1000 drivers compiled into the kernel resulted in the following 
compile error:

Unless I'm misunderstanding anything, the new driver should support a 
superset of what the old driver supported.
Therefore, it would be good if the final merge into Linus' tree will
do an
  rm -r drivers/net/e1000
  mv drivers/net/e1000new drivers/net/e1000
