New install on a new laptop with a Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA8171 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10) card. With the minimal install ifconfig shows the interface and it works using the alx driver. I built a kernel and rebooted, the interface shows with with lspci -v as using alx. But it doesn't show up under ifconfig. Is this a bug, or am I missing a step.

No idea what happened, it just works now.

For kicks I tried setting alx as a module and got the same result.
