Um, I don't know, actually. I'm still using 2.0.29 because I rely on
AFS and Derek Atkins doesn't want to rebuild the module for 2.0.30.
(He's testing a Linux patch which may fix some cache corruption
problems we've been seeing, and which he intends to submit towards
2.0.31 if all goes well.)

I _do_ know that version 0.40 of the driver does not send any packets on
my system.
