 It's not only the numbers of routes thats important... 

 Anyway I've done what can to verify that route selection (comparing
 lookups via netlink and userland longest-prefix-match using the same
 full routing table) and locking (concurrent rDoS on multiple CPU:s 
 also while loading the full routing table) is intact.

 Keep TKEY_GET_MASK in patch #2 as it gives some hint whats going on.

 And how about Paul E. McKenney comment about rcu_dereference() 
 covering the initial fetch?

 BTW. Right now the lab is setup for tests described above...
