I agree with it.
Anyway, I have code for ip(8) for similar reason.
The patch is below:
Can you take a look at it, Stephen and Herbert?
I'm in the process of writing Mobile IPv6 with extended xfrm,
so I'm interested in extending "ip(8) which can handle xfrm".
About "nl_open", my code is not the same for Herbert's one actually, but
similar change is in it (and Herberts' one is also welcome for me).
My patch is:
- Checking SA's algorithm is not implemented yet
- Command line option is `ip xfrm policy` and `ip xfrm state`.
- defined "USE_MIP6" for Mobile IPv6.
(please ignore MIPv6 now...)
# I can prepare cleaner patch (e.g. removing Mobile IPV6 part), if you want.
