Yes, it is unusual now, but ne.c has old-fashioned init_module() which
can not be used if it was built into kernel.  Also ne.c depends on
old-style initialization by Space.c.

Rewriting those old-style initialization code could be possible, but
it will involve much more changes and might cause compatibility issue
(if somebody depends on ethN order of built-in drivers).  So I chose
least intrusive way.
