  Old version of e1000 in 15.04

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The 15.04 includes 7.3.x version of the e1000 driver:

  # modinfo e1000
  filename:       /lib/modules/3.19.0-23-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e1000/e1000.ko
  version:        7.3.21-k8-NAPI
  license:        GPL
  description:    Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver
  author:         Intel Corporation, <linux.nics@xxxxxxxxx>

  However, the latest version from Intel is 8.0.35 from 2011:


  Version: 8.0.35 (Latest)
  Date: 10/17/2011
  Size: 0.21 MB
  Language: English
  Operating Systems: Linux*

  Would be great to upgrade Ubuntu to newer version since the older 7.x
  version for e1000 has well known problems with Tx Unit Hang error.
