I am running 4.7-RELEASE on a nameserver, and when I go to add around
250 aliases to the nic, it takes approx. 5s to add each one.  Which
makes for a rather tedious reboot.  Does anyone have any ideas what
could be occurring?  I duplicated the problem on 2 separate boxes
running the same kernel ... also it is working just fine on a box with
4.5 on it.
