Have you tried to ping the loopback address? I know that a fried card
won't respond to lo replies (127.0.0.1) in Windows, but I'm not sure
what the behavior is in *NIX. That being said, if the loopback
interface isn't up then we have our answer.
I wish I could tell you that I have an extra sbus card kicking around
but I don't :(
Key fingerprint = D1C4 086E DBB5 C18E 6FDA B215 6A25 7174 A941 3B9F
