On my slug, which uses the internal ethernet, I see

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Dec 12 15:14 /sys/class/net/eth0/device -> ../../../devices/platform/ixp4xx_mac.0/


iface=$(ip route | grep '^default' | cut -d ' ' -f 5)
if ls -l /sys/class/net/$iface/device | grep -q ixp4xx_mac; then
	echo "firmware in use"
	echo "firmware not in use"

Does this work on your slugs with and without the firmware? I have
an unreleased nslu2-utils in svn that adds this test.
