  Update Intel ethernet drivers to Fortville SW5

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  We are still waiting for the Fortville SW5 release to happen.  It's
  been slipping but should happen in the next few days.  Once that's
  done and net-dev is open again we will push the remaining patch to get
  the driver (combined from net-next patches and what is in 4.5) up to
  the SW5 version.  Once the net-next patches are accepted I'll update
  you with the last commit that should be pulled into the 16.04 release.
