Thanks for providing that!  I started it up in a qemu-kvm VM, and this
is the first time in years I've actually had any kind of running Hurd.
(It's pathetic for me, I know.)  It hung for a dubiously long time at
"Starting MTA:" and took nearly another minute to barf about something
after I hit ^C there.  But it made it to the login shell, so nicely
done!  (Not that you can really now expect me to actually go and doing
anything for Hurd after all these years...sorry.)

I do see a lot of "kd_setleds1: unexpected state (1)" when using the
VM console keyboard.

w shows 6 login instances on virtual consoles with an entertaining
variety of inexplicable idle times, which correspond to the atime
values of the /dev/tty[1-6] (underyling?) nodes (I guess I just
explained them, so I lied about them being inexplicable).  The entire
existence of the console server is so new to me that I have no idea
which keystrokes switch the virtual consoles or if I'm even near being
connected to that whole reality after logging in on /dev/console (hmm,
I guess I'm not).

Is there a working dhcp client these days, or do I have to figure out
which IP address on the virtual subnet virt-manager assigned me and
just settrans -p /servers/socket/2 by hand?
