I have not had issues when using the dedicated iLo network interface
either. But, when I ship the machine off to the colo, it'll only have
one network drop - so either I get the iLo working in shared mode, or I
don't get to use the iLo at all.

After further testing, i've found that it's the bge driver that's
hanging the iLo in shared network mode. Which makes sense. It looks like
that driver is reading at a low enough level from the hardware that it's
intercepting packets destined for the iLo. So the iLo isn't hanging -
it's just not receiving any traffic after the bge driver gets loaded.
No clue if/how to fix this however.
