Excuse me, but I can't catch why this magic constant is not good.
When we don't increase the number of entries in /proc/net/snmp,
I think the start number of new entries which is displayed in
/proc/net/netstat would be fixed value.

I came up with an idea in order to reduce the patch size.
But it still has a magic constant which points to the start of
new entries. If such a magic constant is not acceptable, I will
create another patch based on this. It will skip the exiting
entry by for() loop:

I think it will cost a bit. Is it acceptable?



[IPV4] SNMP: Display new statistics at /proc/net/netstat

This displays the statistics specified in the updated IP-MIB RFC
(RFC4293) in /proc/net/netstat. The reason why these are not displayed
in /proc/net/snmp is some existing utilities are developed under the
assumption that ipstat items in /proc/net/snmp is unchanged.
