Or for use with RSVP :-), rate-limit the packets, then process them :-)

advice with regards to HBH headers. assuming there isn't any feature enabled that uses HBH. on a platform that supports forwarding of packets with HBH without punting, forward. for platforms that do punt regardless, drop. cheers, Ole
