There's yet another bug in network-functions just above that.
modprobe -c now prints an `install eth0 /bin/true' line even though
there is an alias.  I can't tell whether this is by design or a bug in
modprobe, but it looks like we may have to work around this in

Also, modprobe 3c574_cs will return an exit status if the module
happens to be already loaded.  Is it really appropriate to fail
is_available() in this case?

Unfortunately, even if I comment that bit out, it will still fail on
my box.  It seems that loading 3c574_cs simply won't add eth0 to the
ip link output.  I'm not sure how to proceed debugging this.  Anyone
care to suggest a lead for me to follow?

Thanks in advance,
