There should be some basic network configuration facility installed by
default. I feel that adding both netcfg and iproute to base is the right
thing to do, but wireless should be optional.

I removed wpa_supplicant because it was incredibly inconsistent to have
it, but not netcfg. Now they switched roles.

I am fine with add wpa_supplicant, iw and crda to base if we really want
wireless support installed by default.
