Noted thus far:

0) We have a priority 3 issue with ntp starting up. NTP times out too early
it keeps restarting, and restarting, and restarting... (it's on a 10 second
timer) This is related to the dnssec issue I'm well aware of. It looks like
60 second timer would work better)

(dnssec IS disabled by default in this build, so ntp isn't even needed
and does eventually get the correct time if you kill off named.montime - and
the right answer is to patch ntp to just issue the first queries for

ntp -g option

with the auth-needed bit off... I have NO idea how to do that with dnssec.

ntp even tries ipv6 but doesn't get out of gatech... (gatech's problem, not
me, I hope!)

1) uftp: built, entirely untested

2) netserver: small bug in xinetd - wrong directory for it, had to move it:

root at OpenWrt:/etc/xinetd.d# mv ../xinet.d/netserver .

(hint: I am too tired and dangers to fix this in git myself)

3) And ditg guys.? THANK YOU  FOR THE FLASH!

With a full build with all the major extra tools installed (your new stuff,
plus bismark, plus openvpn and iperf), flash requirements have been reduced
by nearly 8% from the last build, thanks to your work. THANK YOU.

4) Debloat: disabled. We ran into a problem with reducing buffers via
ethtool to low levels on the gige port. It would get 'stuck' after 7 packets
or so, when the ge00 driver was reduced to 4 packets.

so that portion of the debloating stuff is *entirely disabled* right now.

I'm bugged we had to do this for this smoke test, and I intend to fix it as
soon as I have some brain cells in the morning. Since we now have a
reproducable test case for the problem, we're in great shape, for that, or
so I hope.

I'm goin to bed.

please test web, polipo, wired, wireless, encrypted wireless, 5 ghz, 2.4ghz,
the internet, ipv6, your tools, my tools, whatever you can think of, AND
FILE BUGS, and let me know if any other kittens are eaten by 1PM saturday
afternoon EST, at which I'm hoping to pull together RC-1 for wider use.

Thanks for the smoketesting.
