CARP support has been redone in 10-CURRENT, removing the whole "carp0"
pseudo-interface support, and just enabling the CARP protocol on the
existing network interfaces. This includes the equivalent of "carpdev"

Search the -current archives for more information, CFT, and so on.

I don't recall seeing anything about specific plans to MFC to
stable/9, but could be mis-remembering things.
