Neat. Do you expect to send-pr some patches? Maybe they will help with
some sip(4) lossage I'm seeing between very old net4521s and a couple of
newish 4-port Soekris ethernet cards. Essentially, I have to unplug &
replug the ethernet after power-cycling the net4521, or else no packets
will cross, in spite of both sides indicating an active link.
