Irrelevant - wang_jiabo wants double address detection, implemented by
sending a neighbour solicitation for your own address. This should work
out of the box whenever an address is added (I think), and it works for
me at boot time...

Maybe a media negotiation problem using the crosslink cable...

Wait. GE and crossed cable? Use a straight one, please!
