Default e1000e: Update driver to Intel v1.3.17

SRU Justification:

Impact: The e1000e driver shipped with Hardy does not support the
82574L cards found on some newer server boards. This prevents any
network connection for those.

Fix: Pick the latest standalone driver from Intel and replace the
current e1000e code in the backports modules package with that.

Testcase: Using the new backports driver network card(s) are detected
and working. Before that no network card was detected.

Have you tested an existing e1000e that _does_ work so we can at least
smoke test for regression?

Not yet. Will have to install Hardy on another box. Sort of trusted Intel to be
correct (which the new code is their standalone driver package). But I can do
that test.

Seems I do actually not have any other Intel NICs using e1000e...
