Sorry, I probably should have clarified:

(1) Yes, this does fix the issue of interfaces being reported as
    operationally down by bsnmpd. As the RUNNING mask was not being
    set by the kernel before it was returned to userspace.

(2) However, RUNNING flags are not synonomous with the devices being
    up, so the patch listed above changes bsnmpd to check link status
    instead of checking the RUNNING mask.
