Weird. Julian has a useful program testlvs for testing route
cache. I just tested this w. linux-2.2.17 many srcnum (80000) but
cannot force cache overflow. Ok it was not for hours. And 2.2.X
has recent cache code I was wrong here. I have used it for just
for routers for pretty demanding jobs.
I would look for grows in /proc/slabinfo too...

With the patch you can monitor ipv4_dst_ops.entries wich rtstat and
testlvs is good exerciser.
BTW. I think rtstat can hold have some stats about the GC process too.
