   1Steve's quick list of things that need finishing off:
   2[they are in no particular order and range from the trivial to the long winded]
   3
   4 o Proper timeouts on each neighbour (in routing mode) rather than
   5   just the 60 second On-Ethernet cache value.
   6
   7 o Support for X.25 linklayer
   8
   9 o Support for DDCMP link layer
  10
  11 o The DDCMP device itself
  12
  13 o PPP support (rfc1762)
  14
  15 o Lots of testing with real applications
  16
  17 o Verify errors etc. against POSIX 1003.1g (draft)
  18
  19 o Using send/recvmsg() to get at connect/disconnect data (POSIX 1003.1g) 
  20   [maybe this should be done at socket level... the control data in the
  21    send/recvmsg() calls should simply be a vector of set/getsockopt()
  22    calls]
  23
  24 o check MSG_CTRUNC is set where it should be.
  25
  26 o Find all the commonality between DECnet and IPv4 routing code and extract 
  27   it into a small library of routines. [probably a project for 2.7.xx]
  28
  29 o Add perfect socket hashing - an idea suggested by Paul Koning. Currently
  30   we have a half-way house scheme which seems to work reasonably well, but
  31   the full scheme is still worth implementing, its not not top of my list
  32   right now.
  33
  34 o Add session control message flow control
  35
  36 o Add NSP message flow control
  37
  38 o DECnet sendpages() function
  39
  40 o AIO for DECnet
  41
