e100 has been in 2.5.x for quite a long time. All license issues have
similarly been resolved a long time ago.

I expect Intel's Q/A to green light their current driver. With a few
patches it should be ready for 2.4.x soon.

You can easily copy drivers/net/e100[0] into a 2.4.x kernel, it likely
compiles without modification.
