Just because i think it works better being implemented in the kernel? :)
I don't think it is a good answer thought.
It is faster, it is more flexible, it has access to kernel space...

Here are all links I found:
I do want this to be in the mainline kernel, but actually I even don't
think anyone will apply it.
It is too special stuff for generic kernel, it has reserved 112 vrrp
protocol number and so on...
So if developers decide not to include or even not to discuss this cruft
I will not beat myself by my heels. :)
It just works as expected, it is reliable and simple.
And it does it's work, so HA people would like it.
