Bug description:
  This small patch is needed to enable the Killer E2400 Ethernet

  This patch was originally authored by Ben Pope and has been submitted
  to netdev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:


  However, that patch is currently held up by formatting issues in the
  commit message, hasn't yet been merged into the netdev branch

  As we have an upcoming product that uses the E2400, it would hugely
  help System76 if Ubuntu could carry this as a "sauce" patch till it is
  merged upstream.

  In particular, it would help System76 if this patch could be included
  in time to be on the final Ubuntu 15.10/Wily ISO, otherwise our
  customer restore procedure will require WiFi, wont be able to utilize

  Note I've extensively tested this patch with an E2400 Ethernet
  controller and it seems 100% solid.
