Thanks!  Does this imply that your testing did not include packets
exceeding the MTU before?  Perhaps it should have...

I similarly have no time for doing "official" kernel builds today, and
the large ICMP issue is not urgent to fix.  It's just Owl-current, the
issue only affects a network troubleshooting feature, and there's a
workaround posted to owl-users.  So fixing it can wait.  You could post
more info on the bug/fix in here now, though (perhaps a patch).
