I rebuilt the kernel while keeping the existing kernel, installing to /boot/kernelre on the USB stick.

Unfortunately all the modules were redundantly rebuilt.  Maybe I should have had "-D NO_MODULES" instead of "-DNO_MODULES"?

I typed "unload" at the loader prompt, then "boot /boot/kernelre/kernel".

I had the same problem as before with dhclient, looked like nothing different.

Lines in /var/run/dmesg.boot relating to re0 were:
