+What:  Multipath cached routing support in ipv4
+When:  in 2.6.23
+Why:   Code was merged, then submitter immediately disappeared leaving
+       us with no maintainer and lots of bugs.  The code should not have
+       been merged in the first place, and many aspects of it's
+       implementation are blocking more critical core networking
+       development.  It's marked EXPERIMENTAL and no distribution
+       enables it because it cause obscure crashes due to unfixable bugs
+       (interfaces don't return errors so memory allocation can't be
+       handled, calling contexts of these interfaces make handling
+       errors impossible too because they get called after we've
+       totally commited to creating a route object, for example).
+       This problem has existed for years and no forward progress
+       has ever been made, and nobody steps up to try and salvage
+       this code, so we're going to finally just get rid of it.
