I've a bug where e1000e works with Lucid (2.6.32), but fails to probe
with 2.6.35-rc2. The output is mighty terse.

[ 28.193628] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: PCI INT A disabled
[ 28.193740] e1000e: probe of 0000:00:19.0 failed with error -3

The full dmesg logs are at

The reporter says that it also fails with 2.6.34. The report has logs
showing that it works with 2.6.32 and fails with 2.6.35-rc1. I've
requested the reporter install a vanilla -rc2 kernel from,
but I do not expect different results given that the only change from
rc1 to rc2 is 'e1000e: change logical negate to bitwise' (which is not
germane to probing).

This appears to be an Intel OEM MB as far as I can tell from the DMI. It
was new in April so is unlikely to have flash corruption issues such as
those observed with 2.6.24.

Any suggestions on why the probe silently fails? None of the module
params look like they'll make a difference.
