Apparently my UML instance running 2.6.0-test5-um1 lost its connectivity
to outside world via network... Host was running kernel 2.4.22. On host
side I set the tap device down and up again, after which it started
I don't know whether UML receives packets or is it the host which
doesn't. Anyway, I don't get any answers to ping nor I can log in via
ssh. This happened when the UML had been up for some three months, so

kb/s -> 512 kb/s), slower host machine (K6-2+, 512 MB RAM; now 2 GHz
Athlon XP, 512 MB RAM) and was using jail mode, this happened a lot more
