The Intel e100 driver may be included in the "non-free section". I'd like confirmation please.

Looking at linux-2.6.24.2/drivers/net/e100.c...

That looks like binary shiznit to me. Is there an alternative for IBM laptops, particularly the X30s?

The e100 is removed from the linux-libre kernel. The eepro100 driver should work fine. Basically there are two drivers for the same hardware, one Free Software, one not, AFAICT.
