Description of problem:

     net-snmp shows the max speed of a e1000 interface connected at 1gbps to 
only be 100mbps

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rpms listed in version section on a machine with an e1000 NIC 
(actually mine has 3 of them, eth0 connected at 100mbps, eth1 no connected, 
eth2 connected at 1gbps)
2. connect the e1000 NIC to a hub or switch at 1gbps
3. confirm speed of NIC interface with ethtool
4. configure snmp to allow queries and provide interface information with OID 
IF-MIB::ifSpecific.4 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::zeroDotZero
5. run snmpwalk and note the ifSpeed value for the e1000 1gbps interface
Actual results:

     IF-MIB::ifSpeed.4 = Gauge32: 100000000

Expected results:

     IF-MIB::ifSpeed.4 = Gauge32: 1000000000

Additional info:

  oids in snmpd.conf:

     view    networkview   included    .
     view    networkview   included    .
     view    networkview   included    .
     view    networkview   included    .
