        Hi bouyer.
        Thank you very much for your review.
 bouyer>  No, I think it's correct. Preemption does indeed work (I have a 
similiar setup,

 bouyer>  rt-A's carp1 is still master because the CARP protocol says it should

 bouyer>  interface from the brdige in dom0 instead of taking it down). preemp
 bouyer>  only force backup->master transition but not the other way round
        I understand. I thought that CARP watchs CARP state and Interface
        state. but you sey CARP watches tied Interface state and not CARP
        I/F state.
 bouyer>  (that would be dangerous, you could end up with all interfaces in 
backup state
 bouyer>  on both routers).
        Followings are maybe off topic, sorry.
        I want to this works. I wrote rt-A/rt-B is a router, but in my real
        environment, rt-A and rt-B is router with Firewall(pf) and
        So if rt-A and rt-B is asynmetric, pf and snort works limited
        because (for ex) Incomming traffic is pass through rt-A and outgoing
        traffic is pass through rt-B.
        I think(or hope) pfsync is avoidance of this limitation, but snort
        has no avoidance method.
        I thought it is very few situation that Physical I/F is up and carp
        I/F is down. But Operator can down CARP I/F, so I want force
        preemption method.
        Anyway, thank you very much for your review, again.
