| In gta02 HAL detect usb0 well,  but not the eth0.

Hi Tick -

I don't know hal well, but grepping my Fedora fdi for eth, net, wlan
does not give relevant hits so I don't think it makes the problem.

But I wonder if the issue is we do not use a normal 80211 stack like
mac80211 which takes care about announcing the network interface somehow
so that hal understands a new interface has come o can enumerate it
somehow by IOCTL (WLAN does love IOCTLs).  Does it maybe change the
situation if you restart hal after the WLAN network interface is up?

I guess you need to go look at hal sources to get the definitive clue.
