That means we have no way of connecting to a running Neo via USB (if wifi does 
not work) ?? Pretty strange ...
The kernel image and the rootfs image are seperate - we have to tell users: 
Install this kernel and that rootfs or your Ethernet over USB does not 
work ?!

Wolfgang thinks about where to find more kernel module candidates:
- battery driver
- SD card driver
- Glamo driver


PS: Obviously, Wolfgangs is an ironic hint ...
