I’ve performed short investigation. It looks like the issue isn’t fixed in
Linux yet. But problem is known. It was reported to driver
developers in maillist
Unfortunately from mentioned thread it is not clear was the patch accepted
by developers or not. So additionally I’ve checked is the patch applied to
working kernel branch in git repo. It is not. So there is strong possibility
that the patch was rejected.
In this case I forced to use my patched version of e1000 driver.
