Trying to work around kernel features you don't like is guaranteed to
cause you and your users a lot of pain.  This isn't supposed to be a war
between kernel and userspace.

We've actually been doing that, for example with the IPv6 tempaddr
changes that recently went upstream.  We intend to keep doing that going
forward too.  It's just that 0.9.8 was the point where we started doing

That said, we haven't yet figured out how to solve the metric thing that
Pavel is talking about here.
