Description Craig Leres freebsd_committer 1997-07-28 05:40:00 UTC
	The current version of netstat does not print the interface
	name for AF_LINK routing entries. This makes debugging
	network problems more difficult.

	(BTW, I sent this in a day or two ago but send-pr apparently
	ate it. Requiring a particular format for bug reports is ok but
	forcing us to use a badly designed, broken and unsafe interface
	is going a bit far...)

Fix: The appended context diff causes netstat to always print the
	network interface name:

	% netstat -rn | grep link
	131.243.1/24       link#1             UC          0        0      ed0   link#2             UC          0        0      wl0
	224/4              link#1             UCS         0        0      ed0

	It also cleans up some formatting and whitespace foobars.
