I took a run at making ipv4 a module last fall and gave up on it.
There were just to many dependencies in the rest of the kernel on
internal bits and pieces of ipv4. Things might be a bit cleaner now,
but I expect there is at least still a tight connection between the
ethernet layer and the ipv4 code. Probably I should put this on the
list of things to do with the ipv4 code, but it's going to be near
the bottom of the list...
