that's bad to begin with :) - please send those separately so I can fasttrack them
into e1000e and e1000 where applicable.

But yes, I'm very inclined to merge more features into e1000e than e1000. I intend
to put multiqueue support into e1000e, as *all* of the hardware that it will
support has multiple queues. Putting in any other performance feature like tx
batching would absolutely be interesting.
