Steve's quick list of things that need finishing off:
[they are in no particular order and range from the trivial to the long winded]
o Proper timeouts on each neighbour (in routing mode) rather than
just the 60 second On-Ethernet cache value.
o Support for X.25 linklayer
o Support for DDCMP link layer
o The DDCMP device itself
o PPP support (rfc1762)
o Lots of testing with real applications
o Verify errors etc. against POSIX 1003.1g (draft)
o Using send/recvmsg() to get at connect/disconnect data (POSIX 1003.1g)
[maybe this should be done at socket level... the control data in the
send/recvmsg() calls should simply be a vector of set/getsockopt()
o check MSG_CTRUNC is set where it should be.
o Find all the commonality between DECnet and IPv4 routing code and extract
it into a small library of routines. [probably a project for 2.7.xx]
o Add perfect socket hashing - an idea suggested by Paul Koning. Currently
we have a half-way house scheme which seems to work reasonably well, but
the full scheme is still worth implementing, its not not top of my list
right now.
o Add session control message flow control
o Add NSP message flow control
o DECnet sendpages() function
o AIO for DECnet
