i am pretty sure there should be g_ether as well -- and since it went awol
it's probably the cause of your worries.

sounds like the modules are built-in, lo is ok (forgot it) but eth0 is
wlan. i wonder why it would be enabled by default.
anyway, i propose to update your kernel/modules and reboot. since you got
another booting installation on your sd card it should be pretty safe.

how would i know? :-)
as said before: i don't know the script in question and the distribution
either. you could even remove the link, causing the script to remain
