Yeah, I just discovered that myself. I'm wondering

1) why we do that in that function?
2) If it needs to be removed entirely, or moved to after the
register_netdev call
3) If the call to netif_carrier_off also needs similar attention.

I can whip up a patch to remove those calls or move them after the
register, but I don't want to do that without knowing which one is
"right".
