RHEL4.7 Beta

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL4.7 Beta, and reboot.
2. Shut down the server.
3. Send magic packet to the port of LAN card of the server which uses 
   igb driver.

Actual results:
System does not boot.

Additional info:
- This problem occurs on RHEL4.6.
- The attached patch (igb-wol_rhel47.patch) fixes this problem and it is 
very close to the one proposed in bz#432364 for e1000e.
