we had a similar problem with the e1000e driver on kernel 4.9.80 two years back. My college Wilfried Holzke fixed this issue with some changes in the file netdev-4.9-ethercat.c. You can find the description of the changes here: http://lists.etherlab.org/pipermail/etherlab-users/2018-September/018624.html

Hopefully this will fix your problem too.

Unfortunately, I have not tried yet ec_e1000e on Linux Kernel 4.19-rt, but, if it may help you, I can confirm that it works well with Linux Kernel 4.14-rt.

This is my configuration:
- Debian 10 i386 with a custom kernel 4.14.155-rt70a
- IgH EtherCAT Master + Gavin's patchset 20190904 https://sourceforge.net/u/uecasm/etherlab-patches/ci/default/tree/
- I use both ec_r8169 and ec_e1000e drivers

and it works very well.

- I use i386 kernel because I need a single kernel that is compatible with all the computers I have.
- I cannot use a standard Debian kernel because I need also VME bridge drivers.
- The latest Linux kernel version in Gavin's patchset that supports both
ec_r8169 and ec_e1000e is 4.14. Therefore I cannot use a more recent kernel for the moment.
- For ec_e1000e, I use "Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit"
