Re: Promiscuous Mode and Source Routing

The token-ring code doesn't know about promiscuous mode, so there are
some assumptions that probably need to be re-examined. But I can't
think of anything offhand that your patch will break. 

Incidentally that code was changed in 2.1.x and will probably change
again as soon as we get another development series. I want to try
passing IP through SNAP and normalize the IPX handling. In fact
I just set up a NetWare 4.01 server at home to work on this.
