Hi everyone,
    Recently, I have met a trouble that next hop of the update message sent
from bgpd is ::(all zero) which should be 2001::64/64 . At last , I found
the reason that  buf[4096] or buf[NL_PKT_BUF_SIZE] in function
netlink_parse_info(zebra/rt_netlink.c) was overflow.This
result in zebra can't get the complete interfaces and addresses of the
    I looked into the linux kernel v3.6 and discovered the following

214  *  skb should fit one page. This choice is good for headerless malloc.
215  *  But we should limit to 8K so that userspace does not have to
216  *  use enormous buffer sizes on recvmsg() calls just to avoid
217  *  MSG_TRUNC when PAGE_SIZE is very large.
218  */
219 #if PAGE_SIZE < 8192UL
221 #else
223 #endif

  PAGE_SIZE on my platform is 64KB, in addtion I had added so many virtual
  I changed buf[4096] to buf[8192], everything is normal.
 So maybe we should be consistent with linux kernel.

Go ahead!
