The board uses a Realtek RTL8201 chip.

Assuming you mean the onboard, this will be fixed in 1.0.7 which should be released soon. Line 172 in the build script.

If you don't want to wait for the release, you can do the following to fix it.

echo "sunxi_emac" >> /etc/modules

And that should automatically load it. The problem is that the kernel driver doesn't properly specify it's dependencies so it doesn't get automatically loaded by udev.

As for the NAND, that's a known kernel issue and has to do with lack of documentation for the NAND device. If you absolutely have to have NAND support, you will need to use a different branch for the kernel, and that is covered in the sunxi wiki for using NAND. That is outside the scope of Kali.
