Looks like more digging is called for:

# ip addr show
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN 
group default
     link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
     inet scope host lo
        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
     inet6 ::1/128 scope host
        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast 
state UP group default qlen 1000
     link/ether ce:52:c8:ae:9a:66 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

# ifup eth0
/sbin/ifup: configuration for eth0 not found.
Usage: ifup <configuration>

Could it be that the MAC addr is local scope?  But this is needed on 
many SOC boards; not unique to Cubies.
