If I'm telnetted/sshed into a machine and do a "shutdown -r now", the
rc.d/network script says "Downing network interfaces:" and proceeds to
do exactly that. Which leaves me with a hung ssh session that I have to
manually close, and bunch of other hung TCP connections that may
eventually time out and die (or may not if they don't send anything).
This is annoying :) With the Old Way, the kernel would RST all
connections before it shut down.
