[PATCH 1/2] iproute: Add magic cookie to route dump file

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

In order to somehow verify that a blob contains route dump a
4-bytes magic is put at the head of the data and is checked
on restore.

Magic digits are taken from Portland (OR) coordinates :) Is
there any more reliable way of generating such?
