Default Small MPLS Test Network Built With OpenBSD

From http://www.undeadly.org/cgi?action=a...20130906074902

Quote:
A few months ago, I wrote a diff to simplify the calculation of ICMP extension header checksums in the OpenBSD kernel. It so happened that the code is only used by the OpenBSD MPLS subsystem. I didn’t have access to an OpenBSD-based MPLS network at the time, nor was I familiar with MPLS in general; so in the spirit of the OpenBSD hacker mantra “shut up and hack,” I set out to build a small MPLS test network to test my diff.

If you, just like me, wonder what MPLS is, see Wikipedia at Multi-Procotol Label Switching.
