And for that it needs to be merged into 5.x before 5.5-PRERELEASE --
hence into 5.4-STABLE, or "after 5.4 gets released" :-)

The latest version from Q's site works (!), but seems limited to
100baseTX full-duplex. Even at that nominal speed, the actual data
transfers seem limited to 2-3 megabytes/s with occasional latency-spikes
I'll try to back-port if_nve manually and see, what happens.
