  8086:1502 e1000e: probe of 0000:00:19.0 failed with error -3

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When I switch on my laptop, running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS amd64, it will
  boot and load e1000e, but no eth* interface is present. Even repeated
  rmmod and modprobe don't bring up the interface. After a restart (i.e.
  no fresh power-up) it works just fine. After the next power-cycle the
  problem is there again. Laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad T520 (Optimus

  joerg@x61:~$ sudo dmesg | grep e1000e

  Same error happens with a vanilla kernel 4.6.0:

  cat /proc/version

  Afterwards I've added some error output and changed some debugs into
  error prints in the e1000e:
