Subject[PATCH] net: compute a more reasonable default ip6_rt_max_size
Date
The algorithm is based on ipv4 and alloc_large_system_hash().

The following data is from a x86_64 box I tested:

128MB
$ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv{4,6}/route/max_size
16384
22444
512MB
$ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv{4,6}/route/max_size
65536
99856
1GB
$ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv{4,6}/route/max_size
524288
203068
2GB
$ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv{4,6}/route/max_size
1048576
524288
4GB
$ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv{4,6}/route/max_size
2097152
524288
