    I just figured out something interesting. Apparently there's a small timing
    problem with setting up the NIC: If I put in a sleep 1 between setting up
    the interface and setting up the gateway route, everything works pretty well.

    So things now look like this:

    /sbin/ifconfig lo
    /sbin/route add -net netmask lo

    /sbin/ifconfig eth0 a.b.c.d broadcast x.y.225.255 netmask
    /sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 a.b.c.d broadcast netmask

    sleep 1 # This does the trick

    /sbin/route add default gw a.b.c.d netmask metric 1

    has a list of Board-Assembly IDs and the corresponding chip revisions.
