Update Intel ice driver
In progress, Requires assessmentPublicBUG


The driver that comes with the kernel supports only three NICs on E810 Ethernet Controller:

  • Ethernet Controller E810-C for SFP
  • Ethernet Controller E810-C for QSFP
  • Ethernet Controller E810-C for backplane

This makes it non-useful in real life.

We should update ice to the new version to add support for all the rest devices on the E810.
