I haven't tried attaching to a PC yet. So far serial console is my only
connection, while using the wallcharger.
In Nikolaus's systems these modules are explicitly loaded from
/etc/network/interfaces, right?
If so unless something triggers auto-loading, they won't show up before

Would be nice to have.
How would one get usb networking to work then?
Pre-configure as part of cmdline?
As soon as networking is up, anything can be used for a netinstall, full
mirror or apt-cacher-ng.
