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?
