Building the kernel works fine; the kernel loads and initialises OK. Sending packets throu ea0 works ok,
but I can't check for correct reception. Can't recieve packets though; even TCPdump doesn't dump anything.
However, as far as I remember, it does mention packets discarded by the Kernel. I remembered something 
about a change in this area concerning package-header-passing... maybe it hasn't been updated yet.
Run this kernel, ping a valid running machine, and it never answers.
Not known...
