Providing less than optimal performance is a lot better than starting up
with no networking.  In any case optimal performance requires a
non-default selection (virtio).
Well if e1000 gives 95% of the virtio performance, and 8139 gives 50%,
then I know which I will be using.  Personally I don't care which one
is default, since I will use e1000 with bridging anyhow.

if (0) is usually optimized away by the compiler.

The default only matters to unmanaged systems. I think we should aim first for working, and later for performance.
