No, I haven't pushed the changes to any remote repository, because
antrik hasn't given the final acknowledge for these patches.

The changes are mostly about two things: firstly, the original version
of eth-multiplexer didn't always manage stat information correctly.
Secondly, I added the .MASTER node to the multiplexer's directory,
which can be used by instances of devnode as the source of a
pseudo-master device port.  That is, if mux/ is the directory on which
eth-multiplexer is sitting, one can do the following:

  $ settrans -a foo devnode -M mux/.MASTER dev0

You might find something interesting here:
http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/user/scolobb.html .  This is my GSoC
page, so it's mostly about unionmount, but there are some ideas about
eth-multiplexer (search for ``eth-multiplexer'' to jump to them

You can find the patches in the bug-hurd mailing list archives:


I've created two patch series in the summer.  It seemed to me that the
changes they introduced were independent.

Should you need to get the patches by mail, just tell me and I'll send
them to you in private so that I don't resend them to bug-hurd.
