I think you've found the wrong problem ... it looks deliberate to me that
enabling e1000e disables e1000 from claiming the PCI IDs (see the PCIE()
macro right before the e1000_pci_tbl in drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c).

The question is why e1000e isn't claiming the device ...

Intel are signing my paycheques ... these opinions are still mine
"Bill, look, we understand that you're interested in selling us this
operating system, but compare it to ours. We can't possibly take such
a retrograde step."
