    And fixing the ifconfig user data structures took it also.
    Probably just ip needs similar tuning.
    No need to add the name lookup hash table to the kernel.

    Perhaps it would be best if you could post your current patch without
    these hash tables, so that it can be properly reviewed and hopefully
    merged then.
