[Rack] DSL link congested

Yes, that's because I moved the uplink from r00ter to bikeshed.

I now have WAN load balancing configured on bikeshed to auto-route traffic 
on the two uplinks.  Right now I have a weight of 10 on the monkeybrains 
link so most traffic should be there, but in case that link dies it will 
automatically move all traffic to sonic.

The only issue is that dnsmask flakes out when the link changes.  I 
haven't figured out why.  What I did was put dnsmasq on minotaur and 
changed the DHCP dns server handout to minotaur.

More debugging todo, but things should get better eventually.
