Subject: [PATCH net-2.6.25 10/11][INET] Eliminate difference in actions of
 sysctl and proc handler for conf.all.forwarding

AFAIS the net.ipv4.conf. <dev>, all and default sysctls should 
work like this when changed (besides changing the value itself):

<dev>   : optionally do smth else
all     : walk devices
default : walk devices

The proc handler for net.ipv4.conf.all works like this:

<dev>   : flush rt cache
all     : walk devices and flush rt cache
default : nothing

while the sysctl handler works like this:

<dev>   : nothing
all     : nothing
default : walk devices but don't flush the cache

All this looks strange. Am I right that regardless of whatever
handler (proc or syscall) is called the behavior should be:

<dev>   : flush rt cache
all     : walk the devices and flush the cache
default : walk the devices and flush the cache

?
