     We expect there to be some bugs so anyone running HEAD please report

     not waking up when they should, or if the system crashes or deadlocks
     when it did not before.

I've already mentioned it on IRC, so just for the record. Since the select/poll work, svn doesn't work properly. For example:

svn co http://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/llvm/trunk llvm

times out while on a system from the 19th it succeeds.

Another thing I noticed is that dhclient takes longer now (more tries) to get an IP (though it eventually succeeds).
