It is required for some e1000e devices .. I started building it because
several new Dell machines did not work with the driver in 3.4.x or
3.10.x kernels.

Not sure why, but there were issues and this solved them, so I would say
it is required.

There is also in kernel mods to get newer bn* drivers as well that is
patched into the 3.10.x kernel as patches.
