roy_marples.name added a comment to D26538: Add SIOCGIFDATA.

Looks ok to me, thanks. This seems like it would be useful for programs that run under Capsicum.

Hrm, @markj pointed out on IRC https://people.freebsd.org/~emaste/patches/SIOCGIFDATA.diff

One downside of this approach (vs NetBSD) is that we'll have trouble if we want to grow if_data in the future, although we could deal with that if/when it happens.

it looks like OpenBSD and NetBSD implemented this differently:

roy_marples.name added a comment to D5469: Announce INET6 address flag changes to userland.

Generally looking good, though my primary concern is interaction with the existing applications.

Both bird and frr ignore value of ifam_flags.

Will update the patch and look at the behaviour for both of them.

Looks reasonable to add notification when ia6_flags is changed, but why is RTM_ADD used instead of RTM_CHANGE? rt_addrmsg() is for addition/removal of an address and RTM_ADD is translated to RTM_NEWADDR there.
