I'm not readding e1000e modules myself - however I've no idea what
NetworkManager does. Here are messages prior warning:

NetworkManager[304]: <info> monitoring kernel firmware directory '/lib/firmware'.
NetworkManager[304]: <info> rfkill1: found WiFi radio killswitch (at
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.1/0000:03:00.0/ieee80211/phy0/rfkill1)

So it looks like 'bringing up' causes recreation of msi_irqs ?
