however, the choice of the kernel to use is quite simple: if you need the
advanced features in usagi kernel (e.g. ISATAP, drop packets with fake
ipv4-mapped address, RFC 3041 support, anycast support, allow default

IPv6-in-IPv6 tunneling) you should install the usagi kit. if not, use the
standard vanilla kernel.

to analyze routing protocols, perhaps OSPF and BGP4+ would be
