With this applied e1000 fails to work for me.
Command line:

qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 1G -drive
if=virtio,file=/home/mst/rhel6.qcow2  -netdev user,id=bar -net
nic,netdev=bar,model=e1000,macaddr=52:54:00:12:34:57  -redir
tcp:8022::22 -net nic,model=e1000,netdev=foo,macaddr=52:54:00:12:34:56

Could you try that please?
