Dear Quentin,

that is good new, thanks for the hard work! In the docs Kernel 5.1+ is 
mentioned, what about the possibilities to get this also into FreeBSD? 
There are many ppl out there using FRR via OPNsense/pfSense and it would 
be a smooth integration if advertising of VRRP VIPs would be possible. 
Currently the HA process is stopping FRR on the backup unit.
