OK, well, I filed a bug. Can I encourage your reporters to chime in on
their issues and what hardware they see them on?


We have extensive testbeds available, but my big one is 2 hours away
right now (and running a version of lede with this patch from october
or so), and hard to upgrade remotely. Been building up a new one in SF
(warmer) this week, just deployed a bunch of "c.h.i.p"s to stress it
out, but now I have to go check to see which builds of lede I
installed where. I'm pretty sure the UAP-lites are running jan 2...
the wndr is jan 4....

(And here I was dreaming up ways to seriously stress out ipv6
multicast (adding tons of routes to babel,
and/or using "uftp" heavily) (see
https://bugs.lede-project.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=253 ))

I'm going to finish getting something up that works and then go blow
up multicast harder, I think, while scratching my head on ATF. At
least I can get some non-atf data on how the chips behave, I guess.
