net_server won't run as it should

Description

You can't have a link in /boot/system/add-ons/kernel/network/protocols/ pointing to a second partition ;)

I was hoping to have links to all Bluetooth stuff, but l2cap in protocols won't work, probably as the partition are loaded after and some how the net_server won't run as it should. Restarting net_server made it work as it should.

net_server won't show any network devices but they are loaded id you look in /dev/net

Perhaps a broken link in /boot/system/add-ons/kernel/network/protocols/ should be ignored not breake the system ;)

If your protocols are on that (not yet mounted) partition, there is nothing that can be done about it. You cannot get a working network out of it, as core components are missing.

The only way out would be to check if the link becomes valid after a volume has been mounted, but frankly, I don't see the point, especially with package management around the corner which makes /system/ read-only as it should.

Instead of moving all protocols to another partition, you could just add a symlink to the Bluetooth stuff.

I only made the l2cap protocol symlink all other protocol's where as they chould. So removing l2cap protocol symlink made the network work agin.

Now if net_server where to handle that symlink without to tell me of the problem, I would probably never find the problem with Bluetooth that would exist if not l2cap was loaded.

Keep it this for now.. :)
