 I tried 5.3-RC1 and 5.3-STABLE and both refused to start network
 services. dhclient just hangs for about two minutes, then continues
 normally. The old trick (from 5.2-RELEASE) with using tcpdump to go to
 promiscuous mode no longer works.
 My board is the Asus K8V Deluxe, using the onboard sk LAN chip. If
 anyone needs specific output or information, let me know and I'll send
