Of course it's kernel related. I re-compiled my new kernel with
ALL of the same settings. Nothing in that regard has changed, so
something has been changed to the kernel. If you read
Documentation/Changes, you'll see a big thing about how automatic routing
has been added to this kernel, but it doesn't tell you a damn thing about
what needs to be change in terms of init scripts (i.e. network...).
