> Could a router problem prevent "ping" from working ?

Two things that are new and could cause these problems:

1) We dynamically allocate the loopback device now.

2) We have the network namespace stuff.

Another change in this area is that we do routing cache
garbage collection from a workqueue instead of a timer
but that was a pretty straightforward transformation so
it is not high on my list of "suspects".
