Description of problem:
Exception in EthernetHardwareDruid.py due to missing description
of the defxx ethernet device in /boot/module-info.

[root@desk root]# diff -c /boot/module-info-2.4.18-17.7.x

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install everything (all packages...)
2.Install all latest packages from errata
3.Run "neat" and try to configure ethernet.


Actual Results:  An exception until I debugged it and edited /boot/module-info.

Expected Results:  I expected to see the list of ethernet devices.

Additional info:

Better fix is modify the EthernetHardwareDruid.py to handle the
exception when there is no description for an ethernet device type.
