Description

This is a request to compile/include the 'if_urndis.ko' FreeBSH kernel module to allow the connection of generic (i.e. mobile phone) USB networking devices, particularly Android-based phones.

In my use-case, both my WAN1 (fibre) and WAN2 (ADSL) are currently unavailable, and this would allow me to provide temporary relief to my network via my mobile phone.
