and since they're devices you'll need the reconfiguration reboot to
rebuild the /dev and /devices entries (generally a good idea when mucking
with any kernel drivers anyhow - methinks modload would probably fail
since /dev/ip and /dev/udp would prob be in use). The patch looks to
include replacements for ip arp udp icmp and ifconfig. i would hazard to
guess you're just doing a regular reboot and the panic is giving you the
reconfig reboot .. dunno, just a guess here .. for those unfamiliar with
the mystical incantation ..
Nope. Reconfiguration reboot is not necessary; you do need to reboot though
(and that fixed it for me).
Reconfiguration reboots are only necessary if device node need to be
added (added hardware, increased pt_cnt in /etc/system, etc).
