[driverloader] driverloader device eth1 doesn't seem to be present

This is puzzling.

When I first installed driverloader 1.67-1, the linksys wpa11 card 
worked just fine. However, a recent FC2 kernel change prompted me to 
upgrade to 2.04 and just the other day to 2.05. Now when I try to bring 
up the interface, I receive the following

 > /sbin/ifup eth1
interface 'eth1' not found
interface 'eth1' not found
interface 'eth1' not found
driverloader device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying 

If I subsequently run dldrconfig, it detects pre-built modules and 
installs them, and ifup brings up the interface just fine. Rebooting 
results in the same problem.

I checked syslog and see only

driverloader: module license 'see LICENSE file; Copyright (c)2003-2004 
inc.' taints kernel.
driverloader: stack=4096/76/0 REGPARM X86_SWITCH_PAGETABLES
usbcore: registered new driver driverloader

which shows no obvious error.

Has anyone else seen this problem?
