Both Semihalf and Marvel ISL teams use E1000E NICs with Marvell boards
for development/testing purpose, so we always have to enable it
manually - that's the reason why I wanted to have it enabled by
Nevertheless it is indeed not part of the SoC and I understand your
arguments. I will drop it in the next patch-set version
