Regression USB Network with Xperia 10 II

With an Xperia 10 or XA2 it was possible to attach the phone via USB cable to the workstation and switch the phone to developer mode. This would trigger on the workstation

Nov 20 yy:yy:57 name kernel: rndis_host 1-5:1.0: usb0: register 'rndis_host' at usb-0000:00:12.2-5, RNDIS device, aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff

the appearance of a new network interface:

# route |grep usb     *        U     0      0        0 usb0

This seems not to work with the Xperia 10 II device anymore. Any hints?

Solution: The used workstation had an old rndis_host module. Switching to a newer kernel/workstation solved this.
