Not that kind of urgent.

FTR, in the v2 you suggested to use NUD_PERMANENT, I can try to see
how this would look like. Note that this will make the patch larger
and more intrusive, and with potentially a behavior change for whoever
uses the netlink API directly instead of the iproute2 implementation
for ip neigh X proxy things.
