    Issues with g_multi.ko and ethernet over usb.


      After not switching on my edison in some time I decided to try flashing it, again, with a software update.

      And success! I used the OSX/Brew/Alternate method to flash ww05-15 on to it.

      Well, I think success because I'm not really sure how to tell if it was successful.

      uname reports this:

      Linux chives 3.10.17-poky-edison+ #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 30 14:16:35 CET 2015 i686 GNU/Linux


      Now I can't get ethernet over usb up. modprobe'ing g_multi produces the following:

      [  320.137566] g_multi: Unknown parameter `ethernet_config'

      modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'g_multi': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)


      Looking further up dmesg and I see this:

      [0.000000] Kernel command line: rootwait root=PARTUUID=012b3303-34ac-284d-99b4-34e03a2335f4 rootfstype=ext4 console=ttyMFD2 earlyprintk=ttyMFD2,keep loglevel=4 g_multi.ethernet_config=cdc systemd.unit=multi-user.target hardware_id=00 g_multi.iSerialNumber=12e54111fcc8950ef8e1a6ca7654219b g_multi.dev_addr=02:00:86:54:21:9b



      According to modinfo g_multi.ehternet_config is not a valid option.


      And now to the question:

      Did I break my re-flashing? I feel like something is wrong as my root password didn't get reset.

      Or is this build broken?
