Thank you.  Most of the credits goes to Philipp Kern, who created the
package backbone back in August.  I then made some compilation tests,
that's all :-)

Actually, this was already a problem with (at least) one of the official
Openmoko kernels [1][2].  I clearly remember I discussed something about
/etc/modules with Joachim, but I cannot find any reference on the
archive lists.

Anyway, I added g_ether to the /etc/modules created by install.sh [3].

I don't think I need to remind you that, but you can always rescue the
Debian system booting on the flash and then chroot into Debian.

That's good: I haven't heavily tested the "Debian" kernel yet, since my
free time is more and more reduced :-(

FWIW, however, as soon as I'll compile all the drivers as modules, this
will add support for ACPI, which I prefer by far.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
