SubjectRe: e1000e NVM corruption issue status
e1000e: dump eeprom to dmesg for ich8/9

From: Jesse Brandeburg <jesse.brandeburg@intel.com>

dumping the eeprom for now seems like a bit of a verbose
hack, but might be useful when we want to restore it.

if syslogd (or something like) isn't running it won't be kept
however.
