the only network device available at that time should be usb0. have  a  
look i it is there at all.
if not, search for g_ether below /lib/modules and/or put an lsmod before  
that ifup -a to check if it is loaded.

as a workaround (i do not know, how the script continues) you might try to  
put an & at the end of that line
ifup -a &
so that, hopefully, the process backgrounds and the booting continues.
