Re: netstat routing table (verbose) output

Hi Christos !

Bringing the functionality back would be good - I have yet to find a replacement.

Nowadays (-current) I only see the same output as without the -v option.

Is this deliberate? Is this a regression?

The -v option was useful to check things like hopcount and diagnose
routing trouble.
The route show <dest> command still outputs the hopcount and other
information, but not the entire routing table in extended format.

Is there a plan to re-instate the functionality?
I think that died when Elad? tried to cleanup netstat not to use kmem.
It should be fixed properly by adding more stuff to sysctl if we bring
the functionality back.
