At the same time, I'm not sure if we should ever really give up as
long as upper layers keep sending traffic: connectivity can come
back at any time.
For unmodified ULPs, is that wise?
The ICMP error has no context in the ULP, it's only context is the
shim packet. Rather you need to interpret ICMP errors received and
/maybe/ generate ICMP or other errors back up (there may or may not
be a close correspondance).
Needs further thought imho.
