Re: Runtime kernel parameters configuration

I have contacted to kernel folks.
They will work on /usr/src/linux/Documentation/sysctl/*
right away, /usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/ip-sysctl.txt
has a delay. Complexity and time is the problem here...

Anyway, you name the kernel versions and I will
make a diff for you of what they broke-out to run-time
configuration. If you realy need it.

This is an issue you really ought to bring up with the kernel folks or
maybe the LDP.  It's really not Debian specific (though it'd be great
if someone broke-out any run-time configuration that, say,
boot-floppies should know about).
