This is definitely not a problem with the backport. Wheezy version of
qemu-kvm behaves the same, as does current upstream version - for whatever
reason netbsd does not recognize network cards, this is true.
Unfortunately I don't have time right now to get any useful diagnostics
of all this, and the fact that I've absolutely no idea how to debug
netbsd issues (even how to see kernel messages or (try to) load drivers)
does not help either.
