This piece doesn't make sense to me. Why are we clearing OTHER if
ICR_INT_ASSERTED is not set? The original code that was removed was in
commit 4d432f67ff00 "e1000e: Remove unreachable code" was setting IMS
and returning, not clearing the ICR register. I would argue that the
code is probably unreachable and if we just have the checks for OTHER
and LSC then we should be taking care of all of this in the task
anyway. All this code the code in the original was doing was
re-enabling the interrupt via IMS so we probably don't need this bit
as long as we are clearing OTHER and LSC when they are set so that we
can get future interrupts.
