    sys/netipx           ipx_ip.c 
  Merge ip_ip.c:1.43,1.44 from HEAD to RELENG_6:
     When the kernel is compiled with options IPXIP, run the network stack
     with Giant, as there is current unsafety in the IPX tunneled over IP
     code.  There have been no reports of trouble, but there probably would
     be if anyone were running this code at high speed on SMP systems.
     Include kernel.h to get NET_NEEDS_GIANT() definition, which for some
     reason compiled fine here.  I may be running with other include file
     changes locally.
