Subjectkerneld/request-route interaction bug with kernel patch
I've been attempting to use kerneld to automatically dial out via PPP
when a network connection is attempted and no connection is currently
active. It works, but I think there is a bug in how it works.

The bug is that the first time a connection is attempted, the modem dials
but the kernel reports that there is no route to the host. Subsequent
connection requests succeed, of course.

I think that the problem is fixed by the patch below. Possibly there is
a better way to do this, but this is working for me. With this patch,
for example, the first 'rlogin' to a remote system will succeed. Without
it, the rlogin will fail.
