Subject: [net-2.6 PATCH 5/5] e1000e: fix and commonize code for setting the
	receive address registers

From: Bruce Allan <bruce.w.allan@...el.com>

Fix e1000e_rar_set() to flush consecutive register writes to avoid write
combining which some parts cannot handle.  Update e1000e_init_rx_addrs()
to call the fixed e1000e_rar_set() instead of duplicating code.

Also change e1000e_rar_set() to _not_ set the Address Valid bit if the MAC
address is all zeros.
