Yes, I was able to get it to work. However, none of the prebuilt images have the USB set to OTG mode so if you just try to

modprobe g_ether

you'll get a "device not present" message. So to make it work you have to bitbake the image yourself and then change the kernel configuration so that gadget is enabled (as modules) and the USB is set to OTG mode. 

There are instructions on reconfiguring the kernel on the wiki but basically:
bitbake virtual/kernel -c menuconfig

*copy .config from the kernel directory to the defconfig of your image recipe then
bitbake virtual/kernel -c compile -f
bitbake virtual/kernel -c deploy

Then you should get a new kernel and modules in your images directory. 

Good luck.

   has anybody been able to set the USB port in the Thumbo to Gadget
mode, and more important, mount USB networking over it?
   I've been reviewing the archives and wiki, but could not find
anything certain.
