You do need to make sure and
turn it off if networking is disabled.   Any BSP with a
NIC driver should be an example of this.

Since this isn't a required part of every executable,
building it anytime networking is enabled is OK unless
you find yourself needing to know you are running
on board A or board B which uses the same NIC but
has differences you can't detect at run-time.

If any of that makes sense. :-D
