The de driver likes to keep mbuf clusters allocated all the

mbuf clusters) with two de cards; the de driver will chew up
all the mbuf clusters, and the network stack will simply
The configuration in question uses one de card to talk to a
cable modem network, and one to talk to `internal' machines.
