I fixed some bugs, and have been using this under LOCKDEBUG with both NET_MPSAFE and without for a couple of days with no ill effects (using converted "wm" driver and unconverted "pcn" driver).  I also had to convert the "usbnet" code, because it can't use the "non-converted driver compatibility" mechanism I provided (it sleeps, frequently).  I did, however, make its locking protocol a lot simpler.  I need help testing the usbnet changes -- if you have a USB Ethernet dongle, ping me off-list.

MD5 (ifmedia-mpsafe-diff.txt) = 3181222d1be190914b2746d29ad5adb8
