sysctl and the routing socket are exported interfaces. You need to version
The sysctl one is easy: NET_RT_IFLIST becomes NET_RT_OIFLIST, and
we define a new number of NET_RT_IFLIST. Then using struct if_msghdr15
(the old if_msghdr) implement NET_RT_OIFLIST, if COMPAT_15 is defined.
The routing socket one is RTM_IFINFO -> RTM_OLDIFINFO etc...
