 |      -current has the following sysctl mibs.
 |              net.inet.udp.rfc6056.available
 |              net.inet.udp.rfc6056.selected
 |              net.inet6.udp6.rfc6056.available
 |              net.inet6.udp6.rfc6056.selected
 |      they seems odd because
 |              1. they are not udp-specific and inconsist with
 |                 a precedent (net.inet.ip.anonportmin)
 |              2. using the rfc number as a sysctl name is not appropriate.
 |                 eg. what happens if we add another algorithm?
 |                 something like "portselect" is a better name.
 |      UDP_RFC6056ALGO socket option has the same problems.
 Please suggest new names and I'll change them.
