Has anyone tried to use Google's "Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast" (combined power and OTG Ethernet adapter, 2 meters of cable, Realtek R8152 chipset)?

Sure the Kernel has to support USB Host Mode + External Power at the same time, like Timur's USB host kernel and others do.

But maybe a driver is missing?

the Chromecast kernel includes only one driver (asix.ko / USB_NET_AX8817X), but that supports a large family of ASIX parts (AX88xxx), and is very common today. if you search for "USB AX88179" in Amazon/Newegg/Google/wherever, you should be able to locate something cheap.

This seems not to be true. The original 'Ethernet adapter for Chromecast' by Google uses the Realtek R8152 chipset says this raspberry user:

Which N7'13 kernel has the drivers for the Realtek R8152 included? How can I find out?

The Realtek RTL8152BN-CG 10/100M Ethernet controller combines an IEEE 802.3u compliant Media Access Controller (MAC), USB bus controller, and embedded memory. A linear regulator (LDO) is incorporated for reduced BOM cost.
