[Aboriginal] [PATCH] CONFIG_NET_CORE=y required for VIRTIO_NET to build

Hello list,

Please review the below patch, generated with the diff provided in
Aboriginal, for inclusion into Aboriginal. I updated only the
i686-virtio target as it appears to be the most KVM-centric target and
that is where I spend most of my time. Feel free to put it into
baseconfig instead, if more appropriate.

I'm not real sure what caused CONFIG_NET_CORE to go missing in 1.2.5
with the i686-virtio target. I _think_ a change in the kernel
Makefiles/Kconfig is the root cause but haven't dug in that deep yet.

Background: Aboriginal release built the VIRTIO_NET driver
without issue but release 1.2.5 did not. This can be confirmed by the
absence of VIRTIO_NET and "CONFIG_NET_CORE is not set" in the
/proc/config.gz of a clean 1.2.5 build.
