About all I can think of at the moment would be to try 5.2 userland
with an 8.0 kernel, with a particular focus on network interfaces
(things like ifconfig -l, ifconfig -au, etc).  Either replace a 5.2
system's kernel with an 8.0 kernel or run a 5.2 userland chrooted on an
8.0 system, those are how I'd try it.

I don't _think_ anything I've done to the system is relevant here, but
it would be nice to have that confirmed-or-refuted before I (or anyone
else  for that matter) starts chasing after it.  The turnkey system in
question does require some changes in order to run, and it's possible,
albeit unlikely, that something else slipped in.

I'm going to try to find the time to pull over completely stock 5.2 and
try that, but (a) it may take some time for me to scrape up the round
tuits for that and (b) relatively independent attempts to reproduce it
would be nice in any case.
