Christian Sorensen (sp?) from Soekris kindly sent me the older Soekris
board with a slower Hifn (vpn120x) which I can re-install tomorrow
(I dont have it with me, and I cant get remote access to where it is).
IIRC, Sam Leffler added support for the newer hifn chips to the
FreeBSD-4 driver and confirmed that they worked; if so, that's one
"known good" data-point to work from.
(Hmm, its not as simple as running out of hardware contexts, is it?)
