Quoting :

  "Here's the long-promised diff which allows you to specify a physical
  interface 'carpdev' which the carp interface will bind to, and that
  interface does not have to have an IP address on the same subnet (or at
  all, in fact)."

We want to use it to replace a FreeVRRPd-setup, since FreeVRRPd seems to
be pretty unmaintained (and possibly patent-encumbered).
