The Vyatta Quagga changes revolved around two main areas:
  * getting link state and recursive routing working
  * minor tweaks to get full BGP feed to resolve in a timely manner.
    Most of these are upstream. There were some leftover's like the Quagga
    maintainer's refusal to inline the refcount functions.
