I've stated this in the past and I still feel that it is foolish to
put all of this code into the kernel when every single piece of
networking hardware will be doing this for us transparently.

Maybe if someone had proposed this 4 or 5 years ago, but right now
this code will be irrelevant by the time it ships to any real users.
