You don't half like living on the bleeding edge ;-)

I'm not aware of anyone outside HP that uses vnets regularly, but
they're a cool thing that we want to maintain.

I suspect that the current breakage is because the code was written for
2.6.7, and there have been updates since. Syncing up probably isn't very
hard. Perhaps a volunteer will step forward....
