For starters, it breaks savecore and domain lookups:
savecore: can't find device 3536/854608
ntpdate: can't find host azenomei.falu.nl
ntpdate: no servers can be used, exiting

and pings are not replied to anymore.

Pings from the vax are also not replied by the alpha??? tcpdump, running
on the alpha can see them though.
I briefly thought I had not turned off all IPsec stuff on the alpha side
(azenomei) but since tcpdunp shows this stuff in the clear, that cannot
be the case.
Looking at netstat -s gives apparently the answer:
42720111 total packets received
195 bad header checksums (and rising)
So if -O0 really breaks all that stuff it will not be very useful for
testing. At least the checksum algorithm is affected, maybe that gives a
hint for what's wrong with IPsec.
