Kenshi Muto apparently fixed this in subversion:

  * Kenshi Muto
    - modprobe in busybox won't load af_packet. This causes DHCP
      configuration fail.
      This can be avoid by running modprobe without '/sbin/'.

But I don't understand this fix, as modprobe is in /sbin/ anyway. Also, I
can't reproduce the problem with the current unfixed version of netcfg, it
loads af_packet just fine. Kenshi?

(Removing unnecessary hardcoded paths is a good thing anyway, of course.)
