I did. The error message is not contained in the
driver code.

This error seems to occur within

I have traced this crudely into the rtems code and
this error seems to come from the first socket() call
within rtems_bsdnet_initialize_network() although I
have no way to debug the os at this point. I have no
idea where to start looking for the problem.

If I do not call rtems_bsdnet_initialize_network(), no
error is produced, assuming I do no other network
calls. The driver apears to start up without error.

It's ultimately fatal because the netdemo code tries
to create a socket.
