Something wrong with the in-kernel pcnet_cs?

Well, it's in the help for the CRC32 option that it's available to enable
external-kernel tree drivers to access these functions. If you are
running make oldconfig you'll hit the question and if you don't know what
it's about you should consult help...
Seems reasonable to me. Same aplies to deflate, etc. support routines.
