Since you brought it up, can you respin the RB-tree patches?  Let's
just put them into net-2.6.25 and let them cook in there for a long
time.

If they prove to be too expensive in the no-loss case we can do
something like lazy tree creation or simply improving the
insert/delete implmentation.

I think it's important to put RB-tree in because a lot of the ideas
we are discussing have different implications if we go one way or
the other so we should commit to something now in order to focus
our efforts better.
