    Is this the proposed stacked route system?

    Yes, for output mostly.

    Also the idea Alexey and I have to move towards a small
    efficient flow cache shared by IPv4/IPv6 plays into this
    as well. There are changesets on their way to Linus tonight
    which moves ipv4 over to using ipv6's "struct flowi" from
    include/net/flow.h as the routing lookup key.

    The initial ipsec is intended to be simple, singly linked
    lists for the spd/sad databases etc. Making the feature
    freeze is pretty important right now, full blown flow cache
    is just performance improvement :)
