I suspect that is because the IRQ is already freed. So there are no
other interrupts enabled and it thinks it is running in legacy IRQ
mode.

So I will need to add another variable called "present" to
e1000_pm_freeze, I will assign netif_device_present() to it after
taking the rtnl_lock and before I detach the interface, and will test
for it and netif_running() before calling the logic that calls
e1000_down and e1000_free_irq.
