    Here is a better one.

    [E1000]: Restore netif_poll_enable call but make sure IRQs are off

    This restores the previously removed netif_poll_enable call in
    e1000_open. It's needed on all but the first call to e1000_open
    for a NIC as e1000_close always calls netif_poll_disable.

    netif_poll_enable can only be called safely if no polls have been
    scheduled. This should be the case as long as we don't enter our
    IRQ handler.

    In order to guarantee this we explicitly disable IRQs as early
    as possible when we're probing the NIC.
