It's in patches-contrib, which means it is not used currently.  Indeed,
since the console repeaters have been introduced, this patch is obsolete
and will get dropped for the next package.

Same as above, will get dropped.

There are indeed some problems with DHCP, but we need more widespread
testing.  This will be possible as soon as the hurd and glibc packages
are updated and a dhcp-client packages has been uploaded.

Marcus argued that this patch does not make sense as long as the Hurd
console is not started on bootup, IIRC. However, I believe he got
convinced that this patch does not hurt either and makes things easier
for users, so it should get resubmitted.

This one will get dropped with the next upload as well, as the hurd
package builds fine without it. (and I believe there should be no
run-time problems then, correct me if I'm wrong)
