I'm now running a self-built 2.6.25.3 kernel.  I confirm that rx_bytes 
updates as frequently as I'm reasonably able to check it.

Furthermore, the e1000e driver included with 2.5.25.3 works on my 
hardware when using this kernel.  Both e1000 and e1000e work, and 
rx_bytes is updated promptly when using either driver.

Problem solved.
