I'm currently doing some work for netfilter_ipv6 / ip6tables and had a
very extensive look into the current linux 2.4.0-testX ipv6 code.
The most obvious question arising was:
Why is struct ipv6hdr still implementing the old RFC1883 style
4-bit prio and 24-bit flowlabel fields instead of the RFC2460
8-bit tc and 20-bit flowlabel fields?
Is this just some legacy which nobody got around to change? If this is
the case, I'm going to update this. Are there any other reasons?
Live long and prosper
