Debian has a package called laptop-net which includes a daemon named
ifd which watches the media sense status on ethernet ports. You plug a
cable in that has something on the other end, and it does its thing. I
have no idea how heavy it is or whether it's suitable for an embedded
system, but it might do what you want.
