Hi, All!

I have ported what is ready to send to netdev to 2.6.25 and created
appropriate branches on git.openvz.org, namely
- net-2.6.25 aka Miller's 2.6.25 tree
- net-2.6.25-netns with ready patches

Enjoy.

Regars,
	Den

resyncing ... thanks :)

I will send in a few moments a first round for ipv6 taking into account 
ip6_fib.

There some other pending patches I will send, I hope before the end of 
the week.

I am a little lost with what we want to send for net-2.6.25. I mean we 
planned to send af_unix, af_packet, af_netlink, af_inet and af_inet6.

What is the level of functionnality we want to provide with ipv4 and 
ipv6. For example we have addresss autoconfiguration for ipv6, shall we 
send it ?

What about the todo list Pavel planned to do ?

Theoretically we'd like all of this :) Actually now we're ready to send
the first 3 only.

If you mean the patches I wanted to send to Andrew - I've sent 6 of 
them :) Do you have any plans for my schedule ;) ?

Thanks,
Pavel

I think that should behave like a small squaw eating the bear. Right now
we _can_ send netlink preparatory work + PF_UNIX + PF_PACKET. This code
is ready, functional and complete. Let's send it now to reduce amount of
work for maintaining.

after that, we can continue the work. I think that we can send all
remaining IPv4 code after while in this cycle. The code has been
significantly changed and porting/splitting/re-splitting takes longer
than I have expected. All sysctl/sysfs handling is out of scope for me
now and, I think, Dave is not a right person to accept this code.

It will be very good if we'll have functional IPv4 in this kernel. All
other staff looks like a pure bonus. At least we should test and
stabilize it.

You mentioned in an email to have a git repository at openvz and to make 
a todo list with the items for the network namespace.

Ah, got the email with the sentence ;)

"Yes, of course. When we publish the git repo we'll try to provide a 
TODO list so that everyone can participate."

I can send a first draft if you want.

Agree.

The problem I have with ipv6 is that is sharing code with ipv4 namespace 
like net/core/neigh.c. So it is difficult to test ipv6 namespace without 
that.

Can I help with ipv4 ?
