:New submission from Simon 'corecode' Schubert <corecode at fs.ei.tum.de>:
:when executing `route show' on my MP system, I will get varying results.=20
:Additionally, it will print all temporary route entries as well, even for h=
:outside the local network.

    Its because its dumping the route table for a particular cpu (whichever
    one it happens to be running on).  Any fixed routes should always show
    the same, but temporary routes are not replicated (if I remember properly)
    because this allows the TCP stack, which is cpu-localized based on IP
    addresses, to cache routes locally and not bloat the route table for
    every cpu.

    So, if you see different static routes there's a problem, but if you see
    different temporary routes it should be ok.
