Jay, any further issues with this patch? I know Veaceslav was concerned 
about it breaking the logic for link state management if there's no 
current active slave for 2 * arp_interval, while Andy seemed okay with 
it, provided there was a comment explaining. Just looking at what might 
have to be done next here to keep heading towards a resolution.

Thanks much,
