e1000: prevent corruption of EEPROM/NVM
Christopher Li [Fri, 5 Sep 2008 21:04:05 +0000 (14:04 -0700)]
Andrey reports e1000 corruption, and that a patch in vmware's ESX fixed
it.

The EEPROM corruption is triggered by concurrent access of the EEPROM
read/write. Putting a lock around it solve the problem.
