Not right now.  We didn't get enough response in time for release 6.0.2,
so the 4 network drivers where I backported most changes will not be
updated in this release.

I'm intending to include those changes in an upload to s-p-u afterward
so there can be a long testing period before 6.0.3.  (However I'm still
not sure whether this is an acceptable risk in s-p-u.)  Any further call
for testing should refer to that version.
