Subject: IPv4: Why are sysctl settings of abandoned route cache / GC still

Hi list,

is there a reason sysctl settings like net/ipv4/route/
- max_size
- gc_thresh
- gc_min_interval
- gc_min_interval_ms
- gc_elasticity
are still around in current kernels? 

I find this just confusing and misleading.
If there are no concerns I'd like to remove those. I have a patch ready.

Kind Regards
