Christian Helmuth and me have actually worked on the Rpi support over
the just passed Hack'n'Hike weekend. We implemented the early in-kernel
handling of USB SOF interrupts. bringing the CPU load caused by the USB
driver to a reasonable level. We also tested networking (which is
realized via networking-over-USB on the Rpi). You can find this line of
work on the following branch:

You are right that networking on the Rpi was pretty much untested until
now. With the branch above, however,, as well as are known to work. So you may give it a try. Taking a closer
look at the individual commits will give you a good indication about the
kind of changes required to add Rpi support to an existing run script.
