[E3-hacking] Why won't my E3 boot?

This is something of a guess, but:
Building drivers into the kernel doesn't guarantee the order that
they'll be initialised in, and the kernel won't block on enumerating the
USB bus. If you have the camera module built-in, then it may end up
altering timing in such a way that the USB device doesn't get bound
until after the kernel has done IP config. The standard way around this
is to have a ramdisk that loops until the expected devices are found.
