Bug Description

e1000 NIC sporadically hangs, which causes temporary network unavailable.

I saw this issue on virtual environment and on real hardware.
This issue is already fixed in upstream kernel [0] [1].

I made patches against the current Ubuntu kernel (xenial release).

Could you please apply this patch?

Hi all!
Is here any ETA for landing this changes into Xenial?

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Seems to be working fine. I couldn't get any e1000 related errors.
