I am fighting. The great chunk of code is ifdef'd by
CONFIG_IP_ADVANCED_ROUTE and CONFIG_RTNETLINK.
The further reduction is possible only by glueing bits of
IPv4 and IPv6, but it will unavoidably result in growth
of pure IPv4 code.

Do not forget also that 50K "for most people" is nothing.
Just look at memory eaten by netscape or applix :-)
