e1000e: enable/disable ASPM L0s and L1 and ERT according to hardware errata

Prompted by a previous patch submitted by Matthew Garret <mjg@xxxxxxxxxx>,
further digging into errata documentation reveals the current enabling or
disabling of ASPM L0s and L1 states for certain parts supported by this
driver are incorrect. 82571 and 82572 should always disable L1. For
standard frames, 82573/82574/82583 can enable L1 but L0s must be disabled,
and for jumbo frames 82573/82574 must disable L1. This allows for some
parts to enable L1 in certain configurations leading to better power

Also according to the same errata, Early Receive (ERT) should be disabled
on 82573 when using jumbo frames.

I built an OpenSUSE 11.3 kernel with just this patch reverted and the problem
no longer occurs.
