mkinitrd network code doesn't work for drivers without modaliases

The code in mkinitrd for finding net devices won't work for drivers which don't
have modaliases (aka Xen, and probably also some of the wacky platform net
I'll probably put in a hack for now for Xen, but we probably want a better fix
for fc6 final
Run ethtool -i <interface> and awk out the 'driver' field? (and beat drivers
that don't support that...)
Sounds sane... we could actually probably even do a combination of the two. Try
the modalias first (because that will better handle if a driver changes names
from one kernel to another) and if that fails go for ethtool ops.
Added in CVS. Not built.
