After hotplugging an 1Gbps ethernet cable with 1Gbps link partner, the
MII_BMSR may report 10Mbps, renders the network rather slow.

The issue has much lower fail rate after commit 59653e6497d1 ("e1000e:
Make watchdog use delayed work"), which essentially introduces some
delay before running the watchdog task.

But there's still a chance that the hotplugging event and the queued
watchdog task gets run at the same time, then the original issue can be
observed once again.

So let's use mod_delayed_work() to add a deterministic 1 second delay
before running watchdog task, after an interrupt.
