Someone wrote a kernel module some months ago which exposes some special
kernel function via /proc ... IIUC this was intended to allow easier
networking... Does anyone know more about it (or did anyone understand
my confusing description ;) ?

Another interesting thing concerning networking: I use a little script
to set up a bridge between eth0 and tap0; but I have give the new bridge
interface (eg. br0) an IP address and such stuff, because eth0 doesn't
work. This is with Linux 2.6, but I read that with Linux 2.4 it was not
necessary to configure br0, as eth0 would still be accessible. Does
anyone know why this changed? I think it would be much easier if an
interface used in a bridge was still usable.
