Indeed I can confirm now that with the new version of Ubuntu I installed
some weeks (read: months) ago, the standard QEMU-emulated `ne2k_pci'
device doesn't work any longer with GNU Mach.

Resorting to ``-net nic,model=ne2k_isa -net user'' does make it work
again.  This is also the only device from the list at
<http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-doc.html#SEC10>, section
``Network options'' that actually does work.

What have QEMU folks been doing to the NE2KPCI device that it doesn't
work with GNU Mach any longer?

Someone should put some hints onto the wiki page
