MAC spoofing panic mode is broken
It’s really stupid. Look at
will wait for
config/chroot_local-includes/usr/local/sbin/tails-spoof-mac (via the
udevadm settle) to do its thing. If the thing is panic mode, i.e. to
stop NetworkManager, well
tails-unblock-network will start
NetworkManager any way.
In other words, if MAC spoofing is enabled, and for whatever reason some NIC cannot be spoofed and its module cannot be unloaded, then the MAC spoofing panic mode is broken => the error notification will be shown but networking will be enabled from the failing device.
(For the record, I discovered this while working on #6302 (closed). Automated testing (or testing at all) FTW :))
