This patch adds the eeprom_bad_csum_allow module parameter for the
e1000 and e1000e drivers. This allows users of affected hardware
to bypass EEPROM/NVM checksum validation.
Based on a patch by Ben Collins <bcollins at ubuntu.com>

This parameter was already present in the e100 driver already, this
SAUCE patch just adds this functionality for the e1000 and e1000e
drivers. This fixes cases where NVM checksum validation fails, yet the
hardware still functions correctly if we skip this. This patch has
already been verified in the bug.
