    vkernel - Fix frustrating VKE mac address bug
    * Fix a very frustrating bug where VKE would sometimes ignore packets.
      It turns out that the default randomly-generated ether mac address
      was not being properly zero'd, leaving uninitialized locations in
      bytes 0 and 1 which would sometimes make the MAC look like a multicast
    Reported-by: Frustrated tuxilo
