Yeah, I’m seeing now that the lockup does _not_ occur when netem is not used and cake is the root.

I’m also satisfied for now that this shouldn’t hold us up. However, what I’ll also want to try next is netem on a separate veth device from cake. I believe Dave’s veth testing earlier was using three namespaces / veth devices, maybe for this reason(?)

Nice work Jon on the lockup bug also- it’s nice seeing this come together… :)
