Jeff has a patch set to replicate/parallelize the route table, so I
expect that part of it is not going to be difficult. I think the only
outstanding issue with it was to reorder the routing operations to
chain messages through the cpus deterministically rather then sending
parallel messages (to update the route tables).
pfil is a bit harder, but that can just be wrapped in the BGL temporarily
and then dealt with last.
