Routing table core changes to support full route filtering:
o Introduced rte_cow() which should be used for copying on write the
rte's in filters. Each rte now carries a flag saying whether it's
a real route (possessing table linkage and other insignia) or a local
copy. This function can be expected to be fast since its fast-path
o Introduced rte_update_pool which is a linear memory pool used for
all temporary data during rte_update. You should not reference it directly
-- instead use a pool pointer passed to all related functions.
o Split rte_update to three functions:
rte_update The front end: handles all checking, inbound
filtering and calls rte_recalculate() for the
final version of the route.
rte_recalculate Update the table according to already filtered route.
rte_announce Announce routing table changes to all protocols,
passing them through export filters and so on.
The interface has not changed -- still call rte_update() and it will
do the rest for you automagically.
o Use new filtering semantics to be explained in a separate mail.
