Hi Robin, I appreciate the idea, an dtried it before and now again. In
my computer ifopen finishes without properly initializing the
interface, and then everything else fails. I have a switch connected
to the board, and I see the LED takes like 10 seconds to turn on. On
the other hand, ifwait properly waits until the LED is on (and the
interface is initialized)

If this is not the expected behaviour then may there's some sort of
incompatibility between this board and ifopen?
