  e1000e not initialized ~30% of bootups

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  if i watch the nic LEDs while booting they go dark several times,
  which i presume to correlate with hardware resets.  after each reset,
  the LEDs stay out for several seconds, longer than most nics.  after
  the final reset the LEDs don't come back on until after the system
  comes ready for login.  the network is functional on approximately 70%
  of bootups, but is not functional on approximately 30% of bootups.
  from these observations i'm guessing some stage of initialization of
  the e1000e driver is sometimes missed or perhaps not waiting long
  enough before giving up.  is it effective to file such a bug here or
  ought i be interacting with kernel.org?

  /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules contains:
   # PCI device 0x8086:0x10bd (e1000e)
   SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:21:70:32:6a:ee", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

  /etc/network/interfaces contains:
   auto  lo
   iface lo inet loopback
