Yes, Roland explained to me that the functionality belongs in the pfinet
server. Now that I know that inetutils work properly, I am willing to drop
the patch (having an ethernet card on irq 9 did help for this decision, too :)

So the dummy patch is dead now, and I will have to change native-install not
to use it. Everybody unsatisfied by this is invited to debug pfinet.
