If you built eth0 into the kernel, I bet that /etc/conf.modules still has a
line which tries to execute them as modules. Check it out and see. I had a
problem with this when rebuilding with a 2.2.10 kernel but mine was somewhat
worse. My system tried to load support for my adaptec 2940 card twice. I
had built scsi support direct into the kernel and then the system would not
get past trying to resolve module dependencies. I found that the
/etc/conf.modules still contained an alias to the AIX7xxxx module. I did
not need this since scsi support was booted directly. I commented out the
line for my scsi module loading and all was fine.
