2.0-branch autobuild INSTALL kernel, downloaded from:

IP over the cs0 ethernet on Shark doesn't seem to work on 2.0-branch.

For instance, after booting the INSTALL kernel, i killed sysinst then ran:

# ifconfig cs0
# ping

w/ no response.  (yes, i know that the machine is there, and there's no IP address conflict, etc.  8-)

interestingly, 'route flush' flushes an entry for which contains that system's correct ethernet address.  So, it seems like the low-level functionality of the interface is still there (send and rcv enough for ARP, at least).

Also, ftp to another system w/ ftp turned off correctly notes connection refused immediately.  But when ftp is turned on there,
it seems like the connection hangs.

I also tried:
(2.0F) and (for a limited number of tests) it seems to work fine.
see above.
