LXer: This week at LWN: Networking change causes distribution headaches

Published at LXer:

A seemingly innocuous change to the networking code that went into the 2.6.27 kernel is now causing trouble for various distributions. Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSUSE are all buttoning up their packages for a release in the near future—with Ubuntu's due this week—so kernel changes are not particularly welcome. Unfortunately, if the problem is not addressed, some users may never be able to download a fix because their TCP/IP won't interoperate with some broken equipment on the internet.
