Hi,

here comes the next batch batch I'd like to get the pulled into 
net-next-2.6/3.2. These patches mainly focus restructering the 
routing code in order to allow the kernel module the handling
of the current routing algorithm and the upcoming one. 

To ensure a smooth transition and efficient testing later, we 
decided to offer a choice of routing algorithm but have not     
come to a final decision on how to design this choice yet. It
either will be a compile time option, a module parameter or a
runtime switch. Any suggestions / best practice tips ?

Note: The new algorithm has been designed with backward 
compatibility in mind (using TLVs). We are trying to address
the incompatibility issue you and others have pointed out.

Thanks,
Marek
