from cortez's install, I found that usb0 didn't come up by itself so I had to "modprobe g_ether" and "modprobe cdc_ether" and then usb0 appeared.
this could be added to the /etc/network/interfaces file using the "pre-up" functions; and the post-down could rmmod those kernel modules.
hmm, despite this, I can't make android see the network despite the default.props change. need to play a bit more
even more odd, I have added the modprobe as pre-up statements for usb0, and I have to suspend and although it pretends to start usb networking, I have to suspend and resume before usb0 will actually work - the connected linux box doesn't even initially see a device there.
