The DKMS module fails to compile with kernel 4.12.8-2, with the
following message:
==> dkms install e1000e/ -k 4.12.8-2-ARCH
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.12.8-2-ARCH (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/e1000e/ for more information.

The log file reads like this:
DKMS make.log for e1000e- for kernel 4.12.8-2-ARCH (x86_64)
Sun Aug 20 18:12:30 CEST 2017
cc1: error: code model kernel does not support PIC mode
/bin/sh: line 0: [: -ge: unary operator expected
Makefile:199: *** *** Aborting the build. *** This driver is not supported on kernel versions older than 2.4.0. Stop.

Any ideas how to fix this?

@shoober420 yeah, it is because the type cycle_t is not present in types.h in this current kernel version, in the 4.11 it returns apparently.
The way I managed to make this compile is to download the source, modify the file netdev.c in the src folder and add this line:
typedef u64 cycle_t;
and then compressed the file again, and use the new .tar.gz instead of the downloaded from sourceforge. (of course adding a SKIP in the sha256sums part)
After doing that the module compiles succesfully.
I know nothing about patch files for now so... this was my fix :P

The e1000e module does not install on the new 4.10.1 kernel.
