-- Subject: kern/46602: rfc6056 sysctl names are odd
| -current has the following sysctl mibs.
| 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.
