Hi Vipin

Thanks for the answer.
The flag will be good.
But what do you think about the following behaviour (It seems I have 
read this idea in your log for the 4bab68 commit):
Use ospf_get() instead ospf_lookup() while processing the OSPF interface 
mode commands. So the ospf structure will be created on the event when 
the OSPF is really used.
