I cannot successfully build these kernels with my toolchain (see above).

Added these lists again.

To resume what we have found up to now: when runtime PM is activated for
the e1000e NIC, it does not wake up when a cable is plugged or when
ethtool is run. Runtime PM has to be deactivated to get the NIC working
again. Apparently this problem started between 2.6.34 and 2.6.35.
