XO peering.

I did some preliminary tests static-routing some prefixes that were not working earlier over our XO connection and everything seemed fine. I went ahead and turned the session back up, no reports of trouble yet. I'll update if we have any issues.

No joy from our (AS293) perspective. I still see traffic to XO at SJ black-holed.
eqx-sj-rt1-re1> traceroute 198.17.75.45
traceroute to 198.17.75.45 (198.17.75.45), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets ^C

Works fine from Ashburn, though. I've pref'ed XO down at SJ until it is working again.
