Drivers are only loaded on demand - and "ls /dev/net/" causes the 
system to load the networking drivers.
If you do a "ifconfig" afterwards, anyway, it's not necessary, though, 
as that one opens the /dev/net/stack driver, anyway.

I'm not sure how, but by removing the sysctl() function, I obviously 
not only broke routing, but also this one. IOW our current networking 
stack is non-functional right now - but that's only a small loss, 
anyway, it never worked that good (or long).
