Okay!! The overall system performance is better. But still many things
may be broken.

Trying to ssh into the Hurd VM hangs. When trying to SSH connect, in
the Guest, the CPU tops to 70%+

On the host:

rrs@learner:~$ ssh root@
root@'s password: 
Timeout, server not responding.

Then, there's another interesting bug with networking. The first
attempt to restart the network fails. The follow-up attempt passes.

And finally, my app: apt-offline has some zipfile related exceptions
that trigger only on the Hurd platform. The same dataset, when used
under Linux, works fine.

The exception is:

hurd-dev_1%3a0.7.git20160114-1_hurd-i386.deb file synced.
Traceback (most recent call last):

    max(n - len_readbuffer, self.MIN_READ_SIZE)
zlib.error: Error -3 while decompressing: invalid block type

Which I think may be a memory issue, what you mentioned earlier.

I think all these should be filed individually as bugs ? Or should I
just keep reporting them on the mailing list ?
