Pulled from 1.1 errata due to inability to test; retargeted for 1.1.1 errata

Will the 5.3 version fix the bug where the link shows as no with ethtool but if you issue a ethtool -r the interface link status switches to yes?  I found a thread on the E1000-devel list that explains my problems exactly.  It seems the link state interrupts are being lost somehow.

The servers are Dell PowerEdge R200 with the following Intel Pro 1000 VT Quad portcard:
driver: igb
desc: "Intel Corporation 82575GB Gigabit Network Connection"
vendorId: 8086
deviceId: 10d6
subVendorId: 8086
subDeviceId: 145a

This is a huge issue for me on 5.2 because I was about to deploy two new firewalls but the interfaces stop working at times if unplugged and plugged back in it seems.  Or if you plug an interface in after power on.

The E1000-devel link that I mentioned is here:

If this is not known I will file a bug report.  I just hope it can get fixed.
