	 When the router does not receive any messages from a neighbor in
2421 2423
	 <m/dead/ seconds, it will consider the neighbor down. If both directives
2422
	 <m/dead count/ and <m/dead/ are used, <m/dead/ has precendence.
2424
	 <cf/dead count/ and <cf/dead/ are used, <cf/dead/ has precendence.

	On BSD systems, older versions of BIRD supported OSPFv2 only for the
2428
	primary IP address of an interface, other IP ranges on the interface
2429
	were handled as stub networks. Since v1.4.1, regular operation on
2430
	secondary IP addresses is supported, but disabled by default for
2431
	compatibility. This option allows to enable it. The option is a
2432
	transitional measure, will be removed in the next major release as the
2433
	behavior will be changed. On Linux systems, the option is irrelevant, as
2434
	operation on non-primary addresses is already the regular behavior.

2425
	 This sets the size of buffer used for receiving packets. The buffer should
2426
	 be bigger than maximal size of any packets. Value NORMAL (default)
2427
	 means 2*MTU, value LARGE means maximal allowed packet - 65535.
2437
	This option allows to specify the size of buffers used for packet
2438
	processing. The buffer size should be bigger than maximal size of any
2439
	packets. By default, buffers are dynamically resized as needed, but a
2440
	fixed value could be specified. Value <cf/large/ means maximal allowed
2441
	packet size - 65535.

2444
	Transmitted OSPF messages that contain large amount of information are
2445
	segmented to separate OSPF packets to avoid IP fragmentation. This
2446
	option specifies the soft ceiling for the length of generated OSPF
2447
	packets. Default value is the MTU of the network interface. Note that
2448
	larger OSPF packets may still be generated if underlying OSPF messages
2449
	cannot be splitted (e.g. when one large LSA is propagated).
