only the interface "hangs" and not the whole box.
only seens problem reports for the Yukons for that.

might be able to test later this evening but cannot promise.

are you going to remove the XXX before ? I really do not like the
patch as is (w/ or w/o the XXX) but it's better than nothing for now
I guess.

BTW: hadn't had LORs with dwhite's patch when using modularized
version on my amd64 box. Seen LORs when compiled into the kernel.
Well at least that's what I think it had been.
