It is in 2.6.32.

No, we normally provide new drivers through:
1. Updates to drivers in the kernel package (linux-2.6) in stable
2. Backport of the kernel package (linux) from testing

I've already updated e1000e in stable to the version found in Linux
2.6.38.  The only new hardware support I can see added since then is for
i217 (Panther Point); is that what you need?
