We will, and if we do wind up shipping 7.2-REL with lagg(4) broken
(there is still time for a fix if we find it fast enough so that's not
definite yet...) apologies in advance.  At least as things stand now it
seems like the current driver is noticably better than the previous one
in most regards so deciding whether to ship with this breakage versus
reverting to the older driver isn't a particularly easy decision.
