The solution is not ideal but will help FreeBSD 8.x.

Julian has suggested a cleaner way but I considered that to be to
late and intrusive for 8.x; this way we will have enough time for
9.x to convert this io per AF/domain handler routines.

Note: I will garbage collect a lot of opt_route.h dependencies by the
end of the week as that option no longer has to be visible to most of
the tree.

PS: I cannot spell 'routing' correctly usually so whoever touches
UPDATING next please fix the spelling;-)
