vr is used by my TV driver laptop:
vr0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:40:d0:5e:26:38
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex,flowcontrol,rxpause,txpause>)
        status: active

Which currently runs 8.4-RELEASE & eg xrandr, but I'll upgrade soon
when I also configure it to receive from a raspberry-pi TV VPN server.
