Aw come on guys! Give me a hint here! I can't even find this
mysterious PR that was allegedly filed! Since you don't know the number,
how about just giving me the information directly? Are you going to
describe the failure to me at all or am I supposed to hack into the
orbital mind control lasers or something? Did you run tcpdump on it
to see if it's receiving/sending traffic (tcpdump -n -e -i rl0)?
Does it have a link (ifconfig rl0)? Is it not being detected at
