So, I take it from what you've been saying, FreeBSD really does get
rid of the device completely upon eject now (that has changed since
I last looked at the code).
Hmmm, so I take it nothing is really done about the interface pointers
left over in received mbufs in the FreeBSD code? Nothing really jumps
out at me that this is dealt with.
BTW, glad to hear that the userland mostly deals with this.
