at `hurd/pfinet/ethernet.c`, `ethernet_open()`, the `device_open` call, which
produces `edev->ether_port`. Basically, one needs to catch errors like EIEIO
when using it, and in that case re-open the device.

* Add a futex kernel trap to GNU Mach. This can be useful for nicer locking
primitives, including inter-process primitives. `vm_allocate` can be used as an
example in the `gnumach` source tree for how to add a kernel trap. [[!GNU_Savannah_task 6231]]
