I have to admit to a certain amount of culpability here, as I wasn't really
thinking through all of the implications of Brooks' change when I agreed 'yes,
having an epoch timer which makes us less susceptible to roll-over where
struct ifnet and SNMP are concerned, is a good idea'.
Refactoring the PF_ROUTE ABI is probably a task for the 6-CURRENT lifetime.
If done right, we could MT5 it as we go along.

Yeah. This is a pain. There are a number of sticky things about routing
socket messages as they are right now.
This probably needs to happen using a different protocol family to begin
with, with the old PF_ROUTE kept on board as a shim; notice that PF_KEY_V2
is explicitly numbered as such, and has much in common with how routing
sockets and messages are dealt with.
A Tag/Length/Value scheme might be more appropriate; things like dealing
with netmasks are very hairy indeed.
This is not so much on my TODO list as my WISHLIST right now, XORP could
