Nice to know that with this: "ethtool -e eth0 > eth0.eeprom" I can backup the eprom data but how do I restore it in case of failure? I am affected by this bug since I do have and e1000

# lspci | grep 8256[67]
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)

# lsmod | grep e1000
e1000 137536 0

Perhaps the author should post in the article how to restore it?

they are still working to develop the tool to be able to do the restore.

note that it appears that not all e1000 cards are vunerable, only the ones on laptops (and possibly not all of those, but I have seen comments that the PCI/PCIE cards are not vunerable)
