    Great stuff in this

    We are no longer processing router advertisements in the kernel. We are no longer generating privacy addresses in the kernel. Remove knob and always do neighbor unreachable detection.

    Why were RAs ever processed in the kernel? It doesn’t seem useful to me. I know some people at BIGROUTER that think they will miss messages that arrive before the host is up and are adding more and more RA stuff into Linux to account for this. I don’t think messages that arrive before you are up are something worth worrying about.

    Implement counter clockwise rotation for rasops consoles. Rotate if width < height.

    Seems like common sense to be, those with a portrait display probably expect to do some config anyway. I have a laptop with a rotated panel that could do something like this out of the box.
