Yes.  It hung on boot.  ACPI is explicitly enabled because it behaves badly
on my laptop.  Also, while I do seem to lockup/panic/crash/lose my interface
less with the latest kernel build (last updated this morning around
0500PST), it still does sometimes lockup and reboot.  I have also explicitly
disabled RFC3042 support in TCP via sysctl.conf.  I noticed that my last
lockup occurred when I tried to tcpdump.  I wonder if there's some bad
harmony going on between the aironet driver and BPF?
