the e1000 driver probably prints version info to dmesg that you could 
tamper with...

also, check uname - it includes a buildversion (#1) and builddate of the 
currently running kernel:
bangert@marsupilami ~ $ uname -a
Linux marsupilami 2.6.28-gentoo-r2 #1 SMP Tue Mar 3 17:14:06 CET 2009 i686 
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6750 @ 2.66GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
