You mean what happens when a conflict is detected?
I'm not sure that generating DELADDR is the right thing to do as it
does exist within the kernel.
Maybe a new message, RTM_DUPADDR? That suffers from the same possible
crash for badly written programs though.

Doesn't the tentative bit get passed in the rtm message? Why not pass
the full information to userland and let it do what it wishes?

This is now what my latest patch does.
Userland is responsible for checking the flags.
