Yong - How does this driver relate to the upstream kernel version?
Frankly, there are very few bug reports against the Hardy e1000/e1000e
driver so I am reluctant to supersede the kernel version.

Are there platforms that require this update? If so, I'm happy to add
the driver to LUM for just those PCI identifiers that do not conflict
with the kernel version. Alternatively, will the kernel driver work with
the addition of new PCI identifiers?

FYI - If there is driver and bus/device identifier overlap between the
kernel and LUM, the LUM driver gets preference unless it is specifically
black listed.
