lsmod displays just one module - ipv6
ifconfig does not show any interface
the only '*ether*' module under /lib/modules is

however, if I boot the Neo fully from the SD-card with Om2008.9,
then lsmod displays the same module (ipv6) and cdc_ether is also
the only '*ether*' module found.
ifconfig displays eth0, lo and usb0.
