I would guess that it is from the leaked sources OR a BONE beta.
I am sure, since BONE was in the kernel, that they were not
using an R5 kernel, so doubtless things other than networking
were in there.

For what it is worth, I had someone pitch to me (and mail me)
such a kernel. It promptly went in the trash.
