Subject[PATCH v2] e1000e: free IRQ regardless of __E1000_DOWN
Move IRQ free code so that it will happen regardless of the
__E1000_DOWN bit. Currently the e1000e driver only releases its IRQ
if the __E1000_DOWN bit is cleared. This is not sufficient because
it is possible for __E1000_DOWN to be set without releasing the IRQ.
In such a situation, we will hit a kernel bug later in e1000_remove
because the IRQ still has action since it was never freed. A
secondary bus reset can cause this case to happen.
