We have found Julian Anastasov's send-to-self patch extremely useful in

the chances of getting it merged into 2.6?
Ive got a version rediffed against recent BK if required.

I tried this out yesterday with Linux 2.6.5 at it worked like a charm. Thank
you to everyone who replied with solutions and to the author of this patch!
I thought the idea of pinging an invalid IP from one interface while snooping
with ethereal on the other interface was very clever, but hard to use for
performance testing. :-)
