I pushed this as ‘wip-networking-netlink’ to make it easier for people
to test with something like:

  guix time-machine --branch=wip-networking-netlink -- \
    reconfigure …

Useful test scenarios:

  • You’re already using the ‘static-networking-service’ procedure; it’s
    now deprecated but you can reconfigure without changing your config
    file and check that networking works the same as before.

  • Using the new ‘static-networking’ records to define your network,
    particularly with IPv6 connectivity, crazy routes, or anything that
    was not previously possible.

Thanks in advance.  :-)
