Lennart reported the following race condition:

\ e1000_watchdog_task
    \ e1000e_has_link
        \ hw->mac.ops.check_for_link() === e1000e_check_for_copper_link
            /* link is up */
            mac->get_link_status = false;

                            /* interrupt */
                            \ e1000_msix_other
                                hw->mac.get_link_status = true;

        link_active = !hw->mac.get_link_status
        /* link_active is false, wrongly */

This problem arises because the single flag get_link_status is used to
signal two different states: link status needs checking and link status is
down.

Avoid the problem by using the return value of .check_for_link to signal
the link status to e1000e_has_link().
