Subject: what is our codebase, anyway?

I was hacking a bit on integrating NRL's IPv6/IPsec stuff in with
NetBSD, when I noticed some oddities. As an example, in in_pcb.c,
4.4lite (and the NRL stuff) has a bunch of code in in_pcbnotify that
we don't have in ours.
I did some poking around and I started noticing all sorts of other
subtle and not so subtle differences.
Is our networking code really off a 4.4lite code base? In either way,
anyone care to volunteer to answer some questions about why we do
things a little bit differently?
