Is it ok to remove carp(4)?


During my experiments, I ran across a bug where 'ifconfig carp0 destroy'
causes a panic in callout_destroy(). That is not the same bug that ATF
trips over. I have a hunch that it has been there for a long time, but
I don't see a PR for it. That makes me wonder whether anyone is using
carp(4) on -current? Is anyone using it at all?

I use carp with multiple, dual-redundant servers (NetBSD 5.1). It works
very reliably as I use it.

I also use it without any issues. That's not to say there isn't improvements which could be made. However, I only have so many hours in the day.

I haven't looked at the issue with the destroy but I'm (assuming it does exist...) certain it'll be something minor.

It is by no means 'broken'.
