Symbolics support of Ethernet trailers

Has anyone modified the Symbolics Ethernet drivers to allow reception of
Ethernet packets with trailers?  When setting up new Ultrix machines, we
often forget to specify "-trailers" in their /etc/rc.local scripts, and
later on users start losing when they try to communicate with Lispms.  I
don't see any need for Lispms to SEND trailers, nor even to acknowledge
the ability to use them if the Unix machine tries trailer negotiation
(as 4.3bsd and I think SunOS 3.2 do), but it would be nice if they
could receive them if a machine inadvertently sends them.
